Planning the curved cuts

Here are how things look at this point

So I need to cut the curves of the lower pieces. This will require some freehand work with a jigsaw but I want to use a template so that each leg looks the same

So with help from pictures, I sketched out some curves on paper, and then transferred those lines to the wood itself

It's nerve-wracking to imagine cutting into this with a jigsaw now, especially after my last jigsaw errors. But this is what jig saws were made for and I'm pretty confident about success. It will look rough at first but after some sanding, I think I can get the curves to look right
