Curved Templates

I'm making an end table with some curved pieces and i was wondering what the best way to make a curved template was without a spindle sander.

You might need sketchup to veiw the picture its just a picture of the whole end table im building

If you concerned about sanding the curve smooth

You can either make a curved sanding block wrapped with sandpaper in the opposite/reverse shape of the curve
or use a drill press and a sanding drum like this:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
