How to build a wooden arch?

Hi there everyone! I am currently building a pergola for my new home and I have a design in mind but im not sure how to build the arch that i require.

It should look like a single beam (even if it is 3 pieces connected together). The wood would be pressure treated wood with dimensions of 2" x 6" and end to end should be 10 feet including the arch. The arch itself would be 24 " from top to bottom.

Imagine a rainbow, that would be the arch im looking for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might get more replies if you could add a pic or a sketch (with measurements) of what you want to do. Even a picture off the internet of something similar could get the ball rolling.

It sounds to me like you want to bend a 10' (or longer) PT 2x6 ?!?
