can a Shape act as a selection tool?

Hello everyone                                                                                            Level: (Still a ...) Newbie  OS: Windows 7 64bit   Ps CS6



So, I am trying to make a fork (lemme tell ya, get;n those dang prongs are a B**** to get just right)


I want to use the Burn and Dodge tools to create Shading and Highlights


However, I need a Rounded shape selection for the ... uhhh "grooves" between the prongs in order to dodge and burn percisely


To my dismay the Marquee tools don't have a Rounded Rectangle nor could I find a way to set the corner radius of the Marquee Rectangle


The Lasso doesn't allow me to create what I need and even if I could use it to make it just right I couldn't make it exactly the same three different times.


Any suggestions/ideas are greatly appreciated.


Thank you

    Yes, pretty easily.  Go into the Paths panel and look for the little dotted circle icon at the bottom.
