You should lay out only one side of the chair and footstool. Later you’ll use it to trace the other side, making sure they are mirror images, as shown in the layout drawing. Use a standard 15oz can as a radius (about 1½") template for corners. A sharp jigsaw blade should have no trouble following that radius.

To conserve plywood, you can skip laying out the footstool top. It can be pieced together later from the chair-side cutouts.

You must cut the top corner radius of the chair side with a jigsaw; a circular saw would nick up the footstool side.
