After I get the blank turned into a cylinder and define the overall height, I measure out where the bead should go (upper mean point). Then I define the width and depth (height?) of the bead with a parting tool. Then I shape the bead with a spindle gouge. Then I shape the top and bottom 'to' the bead.
