Smile gently round 3/4 board in one pass

Hi folks! I have a friend that is looking for a router bit that will gently round a 3/4 board in one pass. He tried a roundover bit doing both sides in different passes but didn't have much luck. What would you folks recommend? THANKS

How much round over does he want, for a complete round edge a bull nose will do it.

I own a set of bull nose router bits - they work very well and I am confident they would do what you are after. I would post a link to the set but I am not allowed to at this point.

Welcome to the forum.

As the previous posters said, a bull nose bit...

You might be looking for a 1/2 radius bullnose bit. External Bullnose Bits – Half Radius - Lee Valley Tools

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

It sounds to me like he wants a 3/8" radius bullnose bit.

Bullnose bits are available in many sizes, the yellow one shown has a 3/4 radius meaning that it will put a roundover on a 1.5" board.

I thought the title of the thread spoke to a 3/4" board. Why are there so many suggestions to round other sizes?

Is there an inside joke about trying to avoid the question? Am I missing something about the culture of this forum?

The original question was to "gently" round a 3/4" board. Not sure what that means to the OP but doesn't say BULLNOSE to me.

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