Hi Steve, Welcome.
Which router do you have? The roundovers you just need a small roundover bit with a bearing. I don't know which size you want as there are several. an 1/8" roundover looks nice on smaller items. For rabbiting you could use a rabbiting bit with a bearing but there is also a couple of different sizes. But if you are wanting to place an amboynia burl inlay you can get an inlay bit with template guide. There are many on here that have done inlay's that could answer that better.

Have a nice & safe day!
