Hey, Iris; welcome!
The whirly bits bite...pay attention to what you're doing and take the safety advice very seriously. Try all your new toys on scrap wood until you get the hang of it; stuff will get messed up but no big deal if it's scrap.
Decent prices for pretty good quality bits from Lee Valley*. Also some bargains if you shop online from KMS**...but watch the brand names. DIMAR is German and excellent quality, CMT is Italian...used to be made from German steel and Carbide but now a lot of their production is from China...
Whiteside is probably the overall first choice, but hard to find in Canada.
Freud bits are pretty easy to find and good quality. Most of use have at least 3 rounover bits, in 1/4 inch round radius increments. Always a good place to start. I tend to buy bits as I need them. Your choice of projects will affect your bit purchases.
