1/2 inch quarter round

For my latest project i need to make some 1/2 inch quarter round.
How would you guys make this?
I can buy a 1/2 inch round over bit with a 1/4 inch shank
but that seems pretty big to be spinning with my router.
I could buy this.
My thinking would be multiple passes on a larger board then
ripping of the 1/4 round.
Thoughts?

A round over bit is about the easiest cutting bit you could put in your router. You could do that with a laminate trimmer router. Just run the edge on a 3/4" thick board and then rip it to 1/2".

Bought the bit and tried it out.
Worked good just seemed like a awful big bit for the router.
