Okay, I’m reaching out to the great Router Oracle of Knowledge (ROK for short):

I have a challenging situation that would greatly benefit from a bearing guided upside-down round-over bit, is there such a thing?

In short, I have a project that is constructed with an obstruction adjacent to the areas that need to be routed with a round over, and I have unobstructed access from the top/other side, so a round over that I can run from the face opposite to what is getting rounded over would be a huge help.

Please say, “Oh sure, that’s a xxxx bit by Freud.” Problem is I don’t even know to all something like that.

That CMT bit is part of a crown moulding set that furniture maker Lonnie Bird designed for them. You might want to look at the set. I don’t have the number handy.

Amana, Freud and Whiteside sell such bits. I found them at Routerbitworld, my source for Freud bits:

When reading this I was thinking "Bullnose bit". You might want to look at them too. When centered to the work and used with the fence in a router table, they will fully round the edge of your board in one pass, but they have no bearing, so the careful positioning of the router table fence is required.
