Is this a beading or roundover router bit?

I'm looking for a beading bit, I believe. I want to make a groove in a cabinet door that is 1/2 round and straight sides. Searches I do for the cut I want to make state that this is a beading bit. BUT, my problem is that I want to make this groove (small in diameter) down the FRONT of a cabinet door, not the edge and the only bits I see are for edge profiles. Is there a bit I can use to make this same decorative cut down the front of a cabinet door???

Thanks in advance!!

I think the search term is pointed beading bit. Or center bead bit. 2 Links:

Fluting or box core bit.

Sounds like you are wanting beaded inset panel doors?Try for more info...In this case the doors would be squared off and the bead would be on the face frame.Doors and face frame being flush w/ each other.Beading bits seem to have a tendancy to burn the wood in my experience.
