Bedans and coves... *PIC*

JL
>I'm working on a project which requires a lot of spindles with "bulbs". I've found the bedan to be a useful tool to cut the beads and convex curves as well as size the straight parts of the spindles. I don't find it very useful to cut a concave curve though. I've been using a gouge for that portion of the spindle. I am sort of curious as to if anyone can share some tips about using a bedan to cut a cove or if it is even possible.
