Round-over bits basics

Round edges have benefits

Rounded edges give a project a softer, smoother look. The greater the radius of the round-over, the more pronounced this effect becomes.

Also, rounding an edge makes it more durable because it won't show dents, splinter, or lose its finish as easily as a sharp corner. Like a knife that loses its sharp edge, a rounded corner is more "friendly" to people or objects that come in contact with it.
