At work we have a dedicated shaper with a sliding jig that we use for that. I'll try and take a few pics and post. Should work with a router table as the cove cutter is pretty small.

I build my own out of wood and just use a router. I have a box that I use off the lathe. YOu put the turning in that but it has a very limited range for the router.
I also use a table that mounts on the lathe banjo. With this one I can route any shape that I can make a guide for the router. I have used it to route legs and also hollow vessels.
If you can find an old Sears Router Crafter on Ebay you can get those under $200. It's not a high quality machine but will let you do limited quantities.
If your doing this as a serious money maker then go with the Legacy mill.
