Today I got around to trying a rounding over endmill in my lathe to put a radius on the end of a piece of brass stock. It worked like a charm. The only downside to this is that although you can put a nice radius on the stock in the lathe, you can't really do a curved "dome" because you are limited to the radius built into the cutting tool.
