It looks as if you did a great job of matching the piece to the arch. Share with others or at least me: how did you get the correct degree of the arch to built your toolpaths?

Thanks.

Some measuring, some quessing,,
I traced out , full size, what I wanted the arch to be and cut the wall to fit....
Now the secret's out...LOL

Looks fantastic, Michael.

These types of radius casing jobs are my bread and butter, albeit not as beautiful as what you created here.
The bar has been raised for sure.

For those wanting to do this to an existing door, only two measurements are needed, chord length, which is the width of the doorway between jambs, and chord height, which is the height of the arch from the top of the side jambs to the top of the center of the arch.
At that point, everything can be calculated, fabbed off site and it will fit first time.
I routinely fab the arched jamb box, curved head jamb and radius casing and deliver all together.
I'm gonna have to up my game, however after seeing this.
Well done, Sir.

Take a look at the linked site for an even better explanation.
