Scratch stock is the surest way to get it authentic.
The quickest might be to use a steep 'V" bit in a router and route two
shallow "v"'s , side by side, the correct distance apart, then round the
intervening edges with sand paper or a scraper.
I've also used a Dremel tool and one of Dremel's little bits to do the same
thing on more than one occasion.
A kludge, but It looks like a bead when you're done ... at least it
satisfied SWMBO the last time I did it (.. route a bead that is.)
Another method for a raised bead is some 1/8" stock with one edge rounded
over, then sandwiched between two wider boards. Once the glue is dry, rip
the piece to width.
