I GOT IT!!! Went to various furniture stores this morning and asked if I could take photos. I selected the best photo with the shape I wanted and imported it into Photoshop. Using the pen tool (which requires no artistic control of the mouse) on a new layer I clicked various coordinates on the shape and photoshop created a solid shape. Through some Photoshop magic I turned a solid shape into an outline. Next I scaled it to the size I wanted. Then I saved as a PDF and opened in Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader was able to print the large page in to tiled 8.5×11 sheets I taped together and cut the shape. Next comes 1/2 MDF for my actual cutting template to use with a flush trim bit. Whew!
