I’d use a hand plane, but wouldn’t recommend that if you didn’t already have one ready to do. Getting a round over close to round is easy if you keep the ratio at 5 passes at 45 degrees then 1 pass each at 22.5 and 67.5. Ok it’s easier just to think of taking off the corner at 5 passes and those two new corners 1 pass each. You’d be surprised how good that looks already, then a little sanding or scraping would finish it nicely.

Making a 1/4” radius scraper would also help even out the roundover made from sanding or a rasp. If you have a scraper or piece of an old saw, layout and file a 1/4” radius into one corner and use that to scrape the roundover. You may need to ease the edges of the corners to keep them from digging in.
