Pedestal Table Legs Scratch Stock

To sculpt the decorative profile on the top of the legs a router bit wouldn’t do so I tried using scratch stock to form the two outside beads.  It works pretty good, better than I thought especially on hard maple.   It’s literally a rounded shape filed on the edge of a piece of metal then clamped in place and scratched or pushed/dragged along to wood until you scrape away the wood.  

When it bottoms out it stops cutting.
