      I've always used a lowly nail clipper to take the edge off square corners of
      plastic sheet. Although the cut arc isn't exactly tangent to the sheet it
      does a nice job of getting a gentle radius on the corners. If you have a
      considerable number to cut, a jig can be milled from a scrap of 12mm solid
      surface countertop with the clipper mounted at a 45* extending into the
      corner. I've never actually worn out a clipper in this application but
      replacements are inexpensive.
