Default trouble installing Grizzly Plate

Hello all. Hope everyone's doing well. I finally got started building a router table with a Grizzly insert plate. I don't have a router that uses guide bushings, so I made a template to flush trim the hole once I sawed it out.

I was planning to make another template for routing the rabbet where the lips of the plate rest on the top of the table. I figured that a 1/2" rabbet bit wouldn't make a sharp enough radius at the corners, so I would use a template to guide the router with a 1/2" straight bit installed.

Then I realized that the 6" or so router base might cause the corner radius to be a lot less sharp than even the rabbet bit would. Does this sound logical?

I must have missed something about this issue in all the previous discussions about plate mounting. Do you chisel out the corner if the radius isn't small enough? Do you freehand it? Or would my first thought about using the router with the template for the rabbets work? Thanks. Jim
