I have a wood chair project I have plans for. two of the pieces have curves
and double back. about 3 ft long. the plans show the cutout lines on a
graph about one inch squares. where to I get that paper or do I just get
butcher paper and draw my own?
Try at a hobby shop. Or, you can print out graph paper with 1"
squares then glue sheets together. I have used brown paper and drew
my own lines (I have a drafting table and T-square that make this task
quick and easy, but a table with a nice edge and square will work
Google "graph paper roll" and you should find a number of sources. Here's
one http://www.eaieducation.com/531109.html . Note that I have not done
business with that company and have no idea whether they are or are not
Your local office supply store should have them. These
are typically made by 3M and come in around 3'x3' sized pads (or
perhaps a bit smaller), plain, lined, or graph style. They're
intended to be used on easels in meetings for drawing, taking
notes, and so on. This is probably very close to what you need...

I'd first try an office supply store or maybe a college bookstore. Just a
guess, but you might try a copy/print store like kinkos. Some place that
has a large plotter printer should be able to knock out any size you need.
Second Leon's suggestion. Layout the grid on the stock and cut from
there and use that as a template for the remaining parts. Precision
probably isn't that big a consideration - similarity and repeatability
is probably more important - but the more steps you add to a process,
the more error is introduced.
Pads of quarter inch graph paper are readily available at any office
supply. Hidden in all those itty-bitty squares are one inch squares.
Once you find the first one, just count fours squares from a corner
and you will find another one...
first result from Google:
Draw your own. Butcher paper is fine if you have it. Or glue plain
copy paper to thin plywood if you want to make a template.

This is so old that I'm sure you have paper by now, but for next time,
download the free graph paper program from the Web and print your own,
what I use.
more shapes. Hmm...
The only reason I would take up exercising is
so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
