Default Groove routing around corners

Does anyone have an idea for a jig that will route an inset groove on a rounded corner? I'd like to keep the edge distance consistent with the setback on the straight portion of the piece.

Thanks

Hi Raughn - Welcome to the forum
Member here, BobJ, posted a jig in here a week or so ago that does just that, plus a couple of other tricks. He likely has it posted in his gallery, I'm not to sure just where off hand. It was kind of an oval base with bearings instead of a fence for guides. He may be along later and repost it.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi

Here's a shop made jig that will do the same as the picture and PDF file Greg posted plus many others as well, it's a very simple jig to make, you can use the bearings off your other router bits or you buy some off MLCS at the right price.
