Fellow Lumberjocks,
I seem to remember a tip in either in Fine Woodworking, Fine Homebuilding or American Woodworker (those are the only publications available here) about setting out a curve on wood using some pivoting pieces if wood.
Sorry i can’t be more specific but if i could remember i wouldn’t need to ask.
Hope someone out there can help.
Joe.

Thanks Rj, I’m actually a subscriber on FWW.com, but never noticed the making curves article before – has some good stuff in there.
