What you want is called a fingernail profile by some vendors.fingernail or oval edge. For example https://www.eagleamerica.com/product/v161-0805/bull-nose-router-bits
I think I'll try that technique and see if I can get it to work. I held my 1/2 round over bit (largest round over I have) up to the profile and it seemed a little off, but I'll try it. If not, it looks like the fingernail bit Tom suggested is what I need.Elden, I use shallow bullnoses on the edges of all my cutting boards, by using only the top portion of an appropriately sized round-over bit, on a router table, and flipping the piece over for a second cut, as per the diagram attached.
I’ve been learning to use routers for over 20 years and I find many profile names non-intuitive if not counter intuitive. Worse, there is not even consistency among brands or sellers. Roundover, corner round, etc. Several years ago @harrysin showed several different types of bits that would all create a roundover profile.Tom,
Thank you so much for that information. I knew it must have a name. Fingernail--who knew!
