Most of you are woodworkers, but for those who aren't, here is how curved details are machined. First the shape is roughed out on the bandsaw, as close to the line as one can without going over. Then the template is attached to the wood with double sided tape (I use carpet rape which works great). The router bit has a bearing that registers against the template and cuts the curve in the wood. Time spent in perfecting the template pays dividends. Done deal. The template is then reused as needed and saved for future projects.
