Router bit question Answered

I'm trying to make some crooked furniture.  I'm looking to route a ledge in my MDF to set my bendy board into. However, the surface I want to route is curved, so I can't use a router table and a fence to achieve what I want.

I have no idea the terms for what I want to do, so I can't seem to google the solution.  I think I can do it with a binding router bit set, but that's $100.  So I would like to leave that as a last resort

The curvy looking thing is the profile of the box I'm making.  I will then be attaching bendy board.  I want the bendy board to set inside a ledge to get a seamless edge look that won't fray over time.

The box is approx 2'x7' so I need a bit or jig that I can setup on the router, the table isn't really practical.

Any advice on what do use to make that ledge?

Thanks!
