Transfering the shape of a curve from a drawing to a template.

14 years ago

I have a lot of experience but no formal training. I am being asked to use a drawing to build valences and cornice boards. These drawings, while on graph paper are not to scale. The dimensions for the width, length and height of the overall size are there but no details about the curves. Using the information I have, I can determine a starting, center, and ending point. I can even draw the curves freehand.

I need to figure out how to measure the curve so it looks like the drawing when I create a template. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
