A template would be easiest if you only make one size board.
I use a router edge guide because I make all different sizes of boards.
I used to use my 690 PC router but since I got my Bosch Colt , it is much easier to handle and a lot less strain. Multiple passes are the key along with a new or very sharp round nosed bit.
Variable speed motor will help you to prevent burns when you slow down the feed rate coming into the corners. Practice many times on scrap wood before cutting into your project board , especially joining the corners of the groove. Stop when the groove looks good to you. It doesn’t have to be any specified depth.

And this ugly duckling I made with a juice “well” that the grooves drain in to : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
