I need help creating a cutting template for a sleigh bed. You know, the curvy legs of the head and foot board. I am terrible at free-hand drawing and cutting. I’ve tried Sketch Up but have a hard time manipulating the curves without getting “points” as the shape of the curve gradually increases and decreases… plus I’m not sure where to begin in terms of scale/size. Furthermore I hope to be able to print, across multiple pages, a cutting template before I even reach for a saw or power switch.
The end goal are legs like this (http://www.potterybarnkids.com/design-studio/rooms/girls-bedroom-hd1-12-1.html) on the head/foot boards.
Any good leads to find/make a full-size paper template?
