I saw on The Woodsmith Shop where they used the TS to make cove trim. I'd like to try that some day.

That's a hard way to do it. It would be difficult to get perfect details on multiple pieces. As it was said...a lot of sanding. I have done some pencil trays, and some coves on bar rail done with kerf cuts, like this. But for cove cuts it's easier to just set up an angle guide for the TS.

Hand planing as much of the profile you can vs sanding would be the place to start.

Learning more about tools everyday

I have made large cove molding on a table saw running the wood diagonally against the blade but for the most part any molding I have made on a table saw I've used a molding cutter like this.
