Natural Curves

I achieved some actual shop time recently. I had enough time to glue up and cut a simple headboard pattern for a bed I'm working on.

Here is the complicated jig used to create the top of the headboard.

The jig is actually the roll of paper towels.  I rolled out enough paper for half the pattern of the headboard.  I then drew the curve by hand.

The second picture is the full headboard pattern traced on the material.  A few minutes with the jigsaw gave me a roughly completed headboard.
