I'll try to get an image posted.  Just be prepared.  It ain't pretty (I ain't related to Sorby  Grin) and I made it from an old star chisel I had laying round.  I figured if it was hard enough to use on concrete it's be hard enough to make a wood turning tool.

NU,
Who said it has to be pretty as long as it does the job right. Cool

I've ground old chisels in the shapes of different bead profiles.  It comes in handy when you want to repeat the same profile on a pair of objects... like say...  a set of candle holders.  Because they are scrapers  they tend to leave torn grain in some woods.  In hard dense woods they work quite well.

OK, here's one image.  I included another image (a side view) in an edit of my last post (above) cuz I couldn't get the system to accept two images in one entry.  Anyhow, I used an old discarded star chisel, my heavy duty grinder, belt sander and Dremel tool.  The Dremel tool wasn't really necessary because the profile can be established on the edge of a grinding wheel but the Dremel tool kind of dresses it up better.  I ground the surfaces flat, slightly rounded the front corners of the long axis, rounded the tip from underneath to meet the flat top side, ground a beveled edge at about 45 degrees (who measures?) from the rounded bottom side to meet the flat top side (that produced the "V" for the bead) and polished the thing up a bit.
