David: Question: What molding found on drawer fronts is also the name of a barnyard animal?
(a) Bull nose
(b) Lamb's tongue
(c) Cock bead


Answer: (c) Cock bead. Cock bead molding dates from the 18th century. It protected the front of a veneered drawer from damage and also added a shadow line around the drawer front, giving it depth. A cock bead is a strip of wood about 1/16" to 1/8" thick applied around the face of an inset drawer. The front of the strip projects about 1/16" forward from the face of the drawer and is rounded over into a half-circle?a bead shape.
