Traditional shapes are illustrated in 307 with alternative names inset in the sections where applicable. Certain details regularly occur and an astragal or nosing (5) becomes a torus bead with one flat (10), and a bead moulding with two flats (13), while a succession of parallel beads becomes a reeding (19), and a large flute (15) becomes a hollow (16). A flat is the slight member between two opposing curves (22), and a quirk (shift or turning) a right-angled projection (6, 10, etc.). Additionally, an astragal composed of two ellipses meeting at a point becomes a quirked bead because the two curves do not flow into each other.
