If you’re routing the end grain with the roundover, and the dadoes are with the grain, rout the roundover first. This way you won’t tear out the grain on every dado when you cut them. I made a card holder for my Dad with some fancy routed bead around the board, and I did it this way. Hope this makes sense.
