The outside corners are easy, the inside corners, not so much. You have to add extra material to the inside corners and then round it all over with a spindle sander.

I’d probably think of it like building a table – 4 legs and 4 aprons. Or, put differently, use 1/2” wide boards for the sides and 1×1 stock for the four corners. You could run the corners through a router table to get both the inside and outside curves before assembly.

Do one or two corners on scrap wood first to get the setup right, and then it should all be downhill…

Could you use a bandsaw to cut the interior out like a bandsaw box? Cut with the grain to hide the joint. Just a thought.

It depends on how big the radius is, but you could rout it with a bullnose bit.
Cut your square leg, 45 degree cut one side, then rout.

You could also cut the cove on your table saw by angling the fence and raising the blade an 1/8” at a time.
