The Lumberyard
The balled up parts of the drapes are a matter of rounding out the shape. This is accomplished by first cutting off the edge. At this stage you don't want to completely round out the piece, you only want a general shape.

Cut the inside curl by using a stop cut at the laser mark and gouging out the material. Make very small cuts to avoid chipping the edges of the wood.

You will need to separate the three different balls by cutting a grove between them. Cut the grove and cut off the edges as one operation.

The three balls have been roughed in, rounded and separated from one another. The amount of material being cut away with each cut is very small. It is very easy to remove too much material in one cut creating a lopsided ball. Should this happen the entire ball would have to be cut smaller to even it out.
