Bullnosing solid countertop surfaces works on wood counters (not Formica) with a router or a hand plane. Bullnose countertops with a cove bit set in your router to make elegant curves along the counter's surface with instructions from an experienced builder in this free video on home improvement.
I'm Robert Markey and I've been doing construction for many years and I'm going to talk about bullnosing a counter top. Now we will assume this is our countertop. The main issue we are going to deal with is what it is made of. If it is a wooden countertop the best way to do it is with a router or you can do it with a hand plane and get as much of a curve as you want. There are also bull nose hand planes old time planes that would cut that in curve. If we want to use a router we use a cove bit and we set it right so it is even with the bottom of the router. There you have your bullnose. We've got a little bit of a thing we want this to be at probably a little lower but you can get this smooth curve. If it is not wood it is going to depend. If it is Formica there is really nothing you can do about it. There are different kind of laminates that you can use a router and there are different kind of bits that you can use to do that but basically the idea is you use your router with the appropriate bit with the appropriate material and you have a bullnose.
