How to cut curves
Help! I'm in the middle of a project. I want to cut curved pieces of wood for shelf brackets. I used a jig saw with a fine saw blade to cut curves. Because I can't cut a perfect line I cut it slightly larger thinking I could sand or file it down and smooth out the bumps and get a nice smooth curve--however the sanding is not going well, seems impossible to get a vertical edge to it. I tried using a belt sander held sideways. I don't want this to look like a 4th grader's project, would like it to look 1/2 way nice!
Any suggestions??? How would a professional or semi-professional woodworker do this type of job? I thought of using a router to shave off the extra, but it was hard to control.
