Rout curved pieces safely and accurately

If you have a lot of curved parts that all need to be the same size, a good approach is to rough cut them on the band saw and then trim them to match a hardboard template at the router table. This is easy to accomplish with a flush-trim bit (pictured at left).

You can rout curved pieces by guiding them along the router bit's bearing. A starter pin is useful for pivoting the board into the spinning bit in order to start the cut safely and accurately.
