I am planning to make a picture frame using simple bridle joints. I would like to use a round-over bit with a bearing wheel on my router table to round the inside edges on the front of the frame. If I were using a miter joint, I would do the rounding before assembling the frame pieces. But with a bridle joint, it seems that I need to round after the assembly.
Is there some trick to getting the inside corners rounded? Since the bearing wheel does not allow the bit to go all the way into the corner, it does not end up completely smooth – I have tried it on some scrap. Should I just do the best I can and then clean up the corners with a chisel?
