Default 1/16" Round Over Bit

I was glancing through an article on roundover bits and it mentioned using a 1/16" roundover bit to soften edges. I have usually done this with a just a fine sanding block. Should I get the 1/16" roundover bit for this?

I'd think the sanding method would suffice. I use the foam sanding blocks.

Sandpaper. By the time you have the bit set up, you'd have the job done. A tiny error in setting it up and you'd ruin the piece.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Sanding is just as fast.

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.

Far faster as far as I concerned. I normally just hit my edges with my ROS, quick and easy.

But you know, Theo, sometimes it's just really pleasant to not have to listen to machinery; just enjoy the feel of working with your hands on wood. Maybe a little music in the background.
Could be that's the attraction of carving, to folks that do it?
