Yes, If you just increase the depth so that the shoulder engages the wood, the shoulder will sort of cut a ledge (and adjust the rounded over corner as well). I recommend practicing on a scrap first so you can see how it is going to look before making any cuts on your actual piece.

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.

Phil, which bit are you actually using ?
when you have time, it is always a good idea to practice
different bit profiles on scrap wood to see their characteristics.
also, a combination of different bits can give you a very unique profile.

like Nathan said: just always make practice cuts on scrap
prior to dipping the router into something that you can not recover from.
