table edge

If you want the edge of a table to form a semi circle do you use a round over router bit whose turn radius is half the thickness of the table top and rout both the top and bottom of the table top's side, or is there some special bit or way to do this in one pass, even with another piece of equipment?

You could do it that way just fine or you could get a bull nose bit to radius both sides at the same time. You would have a less likely chance of having a blow out routing one side at a time.
