I’m making a highchair for my daughters dolls and the top of the tray detail looks similar to the one in this tutorial. It has rounded corners so my question is can I do this on my router table or is this best with a plunger router. What is the preferred way to rout this out?

I would think that it is much easier with a plunge router . That’s how I would do it.

Definitely a plunge router. You’d want to make a custom base that would span the width of the cavity, and add a fences on each side to keep the edges straight.
