Clearly, the final shape had to be approached in stages.
A wide gouge of relatively low sweep like a 5/35 to establish the contour.

If you can afford a big scorp, that's next.
Otherwise an "inshave" such as is commonly used for chair seats like everybody else.
Try to find one of them in a country garage sale.

Me? I'd go at that with an elbow adze and a D-adze that the Pacific Northwest native carving community
use for the dramatic curves on poles and feast dishes.
Then, very long shaving cuts with crooked knives, maybe a little sanding at the very end.

the project has been finished

Last update 1-14-2016 post number 17, shows a photo of the finished but not finished area on the table shelf thus:

Further advice is just talking amongst ourselves. OP used a circ saw to hog out the area, like cove cutting on the table saw, post 9. Clever, if not the safest method.

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)
