Default Sequence for a compound profile.

I'm pretty sure I have this right but I wanted to ask. I have a tower speaker build going and I'm just about down to shaping the base. The front has a stepped quarter round profile with a 1/2" radius topped with a 1/4" grill with a 1/4" radius as shown in the second pic. I'd like the base to have a similar profile for aesthetics (see third pic).

The plans call for the base to be 1-1/2" thick MDF (2 x 3/4" glued). My plan is to do the profile on the table starting with the 1/2", raising till I get a 1/4" reveal. Then switch to 1/4" and set the fence 1/2" back to align the revealed portion with the bit. (4th and 5th pics).

Is there a better way?

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
