A sketch showing a a bead, fluting and reeding. Quite often these days we get decking boards with a reeded face.
This is a common way of using the half round bead, setting it in from an edge. In this case it is a pair of meeting stiles for double doors. Doing it this way the two stiles look even in width from each side. Another common use is to put smaller beads still to the face side of tongue and grooved boards used as infill panels in doors or as wall panelling.
Made for a specific purpose the parting bead is used in sliding sash windows but like most of these mouldings it does get used for other odd jobs.
Here is a pair of English Oak doors seen at Greenwich in the UK.
Looking closely we can see that beading is used at the joining stiles of the doors, between and under the top fixed panels and that some really well done fluting is used for the architraves.
