I am doing a little project that requires making a curved jig used to bend a laminated cap on a head board. To make the jig it shows measurements to lay out the curve, but then it states to connect the points with a fairing stick. Not familiar with such an item. Could this be as simple as a string on a rope to get the curve? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

fairing stick

I believe just something flexible to get a smooth curve. Can get a 'french curve' from drawing office suppliers.

When laying out flower beds, use a length of garden hose.

fairing strip?

I just recently completed two headboards for platform beds that required a laminated strip. check out my website at www.crookedlitteltree.com
The only thing I did was apply several thin strips with glue and brads to the shape already cut on the headboard. After the glue was dry I cut to final size, machined the edges and called it a job well done. The same process was used on the crib shown on the website as well.
