  Thanks a lot guys.  These are excellent sources.  Much appreciated.

They carry all sizes of slotted flat head steel wood screws and not zinc plated! (but do have plated, bronze, nickel)

I gobble them up at flea markets- harder and harder to find though.

Thanks. I'll try it on some scraps first.

What's a good source for slotted screws?  Seems the price has gone up a lot over the past few years.

Great post Mark, I'll be searching for many of these books
I have done this several times. I use a scratch stock that cuts only half of the width. It is double the work to cut both sides but I find that I get better results. For example, if your drawer blade varies by only a little in width (7/8") and you use a full profile scratch stock you may not get a full bead on the side opposite of the scratch stock fence. It takes only a few minutes more to do both edges/sides (and it is a good workout!). If the flat between the beads has a slight ridge use narrow card scraper or narrow chisel to smooth it out.

Discuss plans and drawings. / Re: MESDA furniture plans

Garrett Wade has plans for the Knee-Hole desk in MESDA drawn by Carlyle Lynch. I found the plans for John Marshal's desk listen a previous reply. This is not the same plans that I once had. Plans from MESDA will say Courtesy of the Museum of Southern Decorative Antiques Winston Salem North Carolina. I called Mesda and Jane said they no longer have the individual plans, all have been sold. They do have a book store. Are any of you familiar with books in the book store  that have drawings of pieces of furniture at the museum?
