Making rope molding with a router

Kevin Rosenfeldt, of Kevin Rosenfeldt Woodworking developed a jig to make rope molding from 1/2″ round stock using a router and store bought router bit (double bead cutter). This jig will accept any standard router and the cutters are available in the marketplace. There is no limit for the length of rope to be made and can also make 3/4″ rope with a bigger cutter. It’s primary use is for a dentil molding on crown molding or a insert on a cabinet door. Just needs to be sliced in half after the rope is milled. The material is fed by a roller that is turned by hand.
