I often use the router bit itself to smooth grosser areas by scraping.
The thin, grey foam sanding pads work pretty well but the routed edge
usually has to be sanded in more than one pass depending on the complexity
of the profile.
Flap wheels - those where the flaps have been cut into about 1/8" wide
fingers - also work pretty well but they will diminish the sharpness of
I haven't tried this myself but I have read of mixing a batch of body filler
or some similar material, place it over a good section of the molding
profile, with a suitable release agent or maybe some plastic wrap or
something over the wood, and letting it harden to a negative shape of the
routed channel. Then use it to back up some sandpaper. If you do try
that, let us know how it works out.
