I'm in the process of making the following project and would like some
advice on how to go about rounding over some of the edges of the pieces.

If word wrap causes a problem, the project can be seen by searching for plan

The stock is only 3/4" pine, so I don't think that rounding over the edges
with a router would be the correct method to use. Too great of a chance for
tear out. Also, due to its design, it would be hard to access all of the
edges that way. Not that all edges need to be rounded over, but it would
make it easier to "decorate" them according to the particular holiday.
With that in mind, I thought of just filing over the particular edges as
long as I don't use a file that's too aggressive. Another thought would be
to simply use a sanding block with 120 grit sandpaper and just break the
edges. Any suggestions?
I realize that this isn't rocket science. It's just that I don't want to
ruin the project at this stage and have to start all over again. I would
like to have it ready by Christmas. All of the parts have already been cut
out and just need to be assembled and painted, which can begin once I figure
out how to round over the edges.
Thanks in advance to those who post a reply to the group.
