If the bottom of the cut is a pocket, slot, or rabbet then you have to use the pattern bit.

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.

Sorry flutemaker but I'm really thick. Do you mean that you want to make the end of a 3/4 piece of wood round like a dowel and leave the rest of the 1 1/2 flat?

It really will depend on the radius of the part because the smallest template bit with bearing I know of is a 1/4" diameter. Some people will use the shaft above the cutting edge of the bit as a pilot and in that case, 1/8" bit will be the smallest normal bit you could use.

Yes ..just making the end having a radius like a dowel. (like you had split a dowel and glued the half on the end) ..Could do it with the jigsaw and sander...just wanted to duplicate it if I could..

Okay take a look at a convex bit to see if you could make use of something like that. Since you only want to shape one edge that makes things more difficult. Especially if you want to make it a perfect half circle.

You can also do that job with a guide bushing and straight bit. You would just need to make a wider slot for the guide bushing to slide around in.
Based on your description This solution seems best.
