I'm guessing you beveled the edge on a router table ?
I have a small tabletop router table, but I mostly use a Bosch hand router with attached router base that I use on most small projects like this. Then I use sanding blocks made from scrap 1x2 red oak that I stick sandpaper to in order to sand the bevel. I spray a light coat of 3M 77 contact adhesive only on the piece of sandpaper I cut to fit the block and wave it around a few seconds, then stick it to the block. This acts like a Post-it note when the sandpaper needs replacing it is easy to peel off.
Sometimes I use a vertical belt sander and finish it off with the sanding block. Depends on what I am making.
I save the some of the sanding dust from past projects in zip-lock bags. It can be used to make colored filler for for projects I haven't done yet.
