Without an accurate layout, it takes a lot of fussing to achieve any kind of a fair (smooth) curve. ) Pictured here are some of the tricks I've found that make laying out curves go a little smoother (so to speak). For curves where you know the radius, a compass is the tool for the job. If the curve has a larger radius, a set of trammel points that ride on a wood bar will do the trick. For really large diameter curves, tie a string to a pencil. Drive a nail at the center point and tie the string to it (or have a helper hold the string there).
Take two straight sticks that are 3″ or 4″ longer than the distance from point A to point B. Place one stick so it runs from A to C, and the other so it runs from B to C. Tack the sticks together with a couple of brads so the angle between them cannot change. To draw the arc, hold your pencil where the sticks intersect. Slowly run the sticks along the finish nails. drawing ellipses While circles and arcs are fine curves, they do have their limitations and may not be appropriate in all situations.
When the jig hits the corner stop, pivot the workpiece to make the cut. Make sure the carriage is in the cutting position; the pivot point should be directly out from the blade. Measure out from the blade and move the pivot point to the desired radius. Cut your blank about ¼″ larger than the diameter of your circle. Drill a shallow 1/8″ hole at the center point. Pull the carriage to the loading position (toward the front of the saw) and place the blank on the pivot point. With a large piece, you may need to hold it at a slight angle to the blade.
