Hi Woodman88, David Dean, Dnick, and Bruc101, Thank you gentlemen for your kindness, I appreciate it very much. I hope all liked the slide show and if you have not looked at the 12 drawer it will show more of how the beading system of Marc Sommerfeld works as I have included more photos of the notching and lay out of the face frame. It is a system of which the notching in the face frame is done using a large cutter that attaches to a table saw. The beads are then cut with a simple beading bit. The system is selling very reasonable at around $230.00 dollars and postage is free. Thanks again.
