Fellow LJ, the plans call for a 1” bullnose router bit. Unfortunately I don’t have one and really don’t want to buy one. Can I use a 1/2” round over on each side and get the same effect?

If your 1/2” round over bit has a bearing on it remember when you make the 2nd pass the bearing will NOT have surface to ride on. You may end up with a small ridge in the middle of the round over. If you can run the piece on a router table or guide the router with a straight edge.

Thats good info. I would found out the hard way on that. If I use a router table, do I remove the bearing when using the fence?

No. Use a straight edge to align the bit to the fence.
