How do people get that nice rounded edge look?

Is it just a lot of TLC + Sandpaper?

To get a complete roundover, you need to use a 3/8" roundover bit. Run it on both edges and you will get a perfect roundover. 3/8" + 3/8" = 3/4"

I do that with my port walls. An on the outer corners i use 3/4" or 3/8", jus whatever i feel like using or already have in the router.

Any suggestions on routers? Preferably on the cheaper side since... I'm on a strict budget :crap:
I hate being young... (for money reasons... and that's it :D)

Any particular store/website? Or just in general?

HD has a Skil plunge router for $80. Been using mine for 2 years now with no problems. Solid budget router IMO...

the plunge router is one of the only decent ryobi tools also. not bad for 89$ at HD. i use a skil worm drive alot at work and it's stood up well. i'd trust a skil router.
