so just came across this … it got me thinking about how to make that rounded bottom. 
 

Am I over thinking it? Is it just a big round over bit on the bottom?

I would use a round over bit in the router with a bearing.  I myself would probably use a hand held router as apposed to the router table and have the bottom side of the table top up to do the work.

Ok was thinking that … but it looks like a 6/4 to 8/4 top. That’s a hell of a round over bit. Yes, take small passes and work your way up but still a beast. Assuming like a 1” round over bit or so.

It is hard to tell from the picture but I would use a table edge profile bit.  Depending on the depth of cut the bit will provide a round edge and give the appearance of a thinner table.  Used on the bottom surface it will  leave a flat, sharp edge on the top.  I use it in a hand held router, sneaking up on the depth of cut I want.  When I made this kitchen island I wanted a gentle slope to the edge,  and used the bit on the stop surface.  The table top was a strong 6/4.
