Default routing the groove on a cutting board

Greetings to the woodworkers on this forum. I live in Victoria BC and I make stuff in little bits of spare time.

I use a lot of pallet wood. Right now I'm making a new cutting board for our kitchen out of pallet oak.

I am trying to figure out how to make the little groove around the edge follow the curve of the corner on three corners, but bypass the corner which has the handle extension. I'm using a 3/8" round router bit which is on a straight shank. Whether I rout the groove on my table, or rout it hand held with guide boards, the corner won't do what I want it to do. There must be some really simple solution. Any great insights out there?

Hi Peter

You just need to make a quick template and pickup a pattern bit,sq. template ,just glue up some sticks to make a quick template, once dry stick the template to the cutting board, plunge down and go all the way around the inside of the template and your done..

C1661 Core Box Pattern Bit, 1/4" Shank
Grizzly.comģ -- Online Catalog

Or you can go over the top by using the bit below to get that special look
