trimming a fanlight!

I'm doing the inside trim on my addition - its in the greek revival style and the main house dates back to around mid-19th C. the addition has a fanlight in the gable end and i need to do the interior trim for it. I know there's flexible material but i have no experience with it. I will need the equivalent of 1"X4" with the ability to cut a bead on one edge, a cap to the 1X4 about 1 1/2" wide and a pretty standard ogee to butt up against the cap on top of the 1X4. pretty simple/standard stuff that will match the rest of the room. any suggestions, advice etc on the right material and how to use it? the fanlight is maybe 4' wide at the base (at work right now so can't check for sure) and about 2' high. radius is not too tight. as always looking to take advantage of the wisdom of those with the experience! thx!

Find the radius you need and call the flex molding company or the website to see if you can use their stuff. Otherwise, you will have to make your own 1x4 then see if 3/4 ogee flex molding will follow the 1x4.
