The windows in the photos below are made with ash hardwood.
Below are some photos I took while constructing the curved portion of the
1. I taped wide heavy resin paper tightly to the top of the construction table.
2. I drew the radius I needed on the paper to serve as a guide to layout the pieces to make up the rough molding to cut into a curve to match the windows.
3. Then the pieces were cut to follow the radius for each window.
4. After the pieces were cut, I used the drill press to drill pocket holes in the back of the individual pieces.
5. With pocket hole screws the pieces were screwed together.
6. A scrap piece of wood was hot glued to the construction table at the center point of the radius to allow for cutting of the curve with a router.
7. Scrap wood was clamped down to the construction table at the bottom on each side of the curve to serve as a
spacer between the construction table and the molding to be cut.
8. Hot glue was used to glue the top center spacer to the heavy resin paper.
9. The rough curved molding that was screwed together earlier was hot glued to the spacers that were clamped and hot glued
to the construction table in steps 6 & 7.

Following are photo taken during the development of the two curved window molding show in the photo to the left.
In this photo I am setting up the center block for the router pivot point.
As seen here, I clamped waste blocks to the bench at the ends of the curved moldings then used hot melt glue to secure the ends of the molding down while cutting the curve with the router.
