Sheet rock repair/Lower Bay Window area

Hi- I have have a kitchen/breakfast area baywindow that has suffered some water damage. The sheetrock, and moulding have been removed from the area 2" below all three windows. I now have to replace the sheetrock which I know I can do. What has me stumped is the inner radius where the sheetrock corners meet. Is there a form for this or is this a "trick" of the trade? Should I just hire someone to do this?

If this is either a 30 or 45 degree bay, you just cut flat panels so the pieces touch one another. Then you tape and compound the seams.
What radius are you speaking about?

Using the metal reinforced paper "corner bead" as opposed to regular tape will help keep your seams straight. The angle is likely 22.5*, but as Ron said, you just cut the drywall edge square and butt to the other piece. If there IS actually a radius, it's because the finisher couldn't finish the angle properly and chose to "round" it out. A flexible rubber knife is often used for this.....
