Wood Arched Door Jam


This is some thing I wanted to make for a while but never had a customer for it. But finaly on day that customer came along and wanted it. The whole unit was made of popular. The doors were custom to match existing cabinets next to the unit. The jame was made in 3 Pieces, The 2 Raised panel jams and the Raised panel Arch. The asembley took a whole day to make it all work together, but it came together for a nice finished product. Looking forward to a stain grade one with no Kerfs............

Can you go into a bit more detail about how you finished the underside or jamb of the arch? I like the idea of kerfs but how did you fill it in? Also what size materials did you use? Half inch plywood?

Then I sanded and sanded with a sanding block to match the radius to true up the curve. Since it was paint grade I could get away with the kerf's. When it was painted you could never tell.....
