Wait… 3/16” radii would be 3/8” diameter, so I could do a 1/4” or 3/8” router bit. Problem with those small ones is they don’t come long enough.

Infinity tools has a 1/2” x 2” straight cutter for $25 and 3/8” x 1” for $16.90. Link here: https://www.infinitytools.com/routing/router-bits/carbide/flush-trim-router-bits/flush-trim-router-bits-4855

Questions:
1. Am I going to regret a straight cutter bit on such a large piece?
2. Is a 3/8” diameter bit on a 3/16” radius inside curve a bad idea (exact fit) when template routing?
3. Someone recommended Infinity tools to me – what are your thoughts here?

You wil need a few bits to do what you are trying to do. You will not find a 2” long bit smaller that 1/2” diameter. I highly recommend a spiral carbide bit for routing G&G cloud lifts to eliminate tear out on the cuts into the grain. I use these:
