Creating a doorway arch.
I want to convert a simple square-to-the-ceiling room connection to a gentle arch. What type of technique is commonly used to create the "curve" on the bottom of the opening? (The underside of the top, that is.)

Take a look through these sites.

You can do it from scratch if you're a competent finish carpenter, but you will probably end up with a mess if you're new to carpentry....:whistling2:

Thanks Jay. Cool link. I'm not a "competent finish carpenter", but what I lack in experience, I make up for with passion. :wink:

Hi Artie2,

I've created a few of those archways, the kind you simply build around an existing opening. I'm sory I don't have any DIY photos up yet on building them (I lost most of them in the great MAC hard drive crash of 2006), but I could expedite that if you're really interested. Take a look at these archways Archway-100, Archway-101 and Archway-102.

There is also a great company you might find interesting I've never bought any of their products, but the stuff on their website looks pretty great.

If you need any more help, just ask.

Cheers, Ken

Great links Ken. Especially the Arch-Rite one. Had some nice videos.
