Default Routing Melamine

Greetings everyone.I've had my router for some time, haven't used it that much, basically straight cuts. Joined this forum because I am trying to cut a curved edge on a piece of melamine and it is chipping, not badly, but not as smooth as I had hoped. I've tried both of my straight bits-both the same. Help!?

Hi Habsfan

They make many router bits just for that job,,,the real key is to run your router as fast as it will spin and use the right bit..and with just a little bit of the Melamine hanging over the edge...

Here are just some of them..

The best one I have come across is the one below ▼
