I saw an episode of This Old House not long ago where they were doing
something like this.
They had a carpenter there that cut little pieces of the trim at a precise
angle to get the exact curve he wanted. He glued them together, then filled,
sanded, primed and finished them. Excellent work, but quite time
They also mentioned PVC molding on that episode as a possible alternative to
all of that work, and it made a very nice finished looking edge.
Here's a link to a discussion group on it, perhaps you can find more
information with what you can glean from this.
Best of luck and be sure to post some photos of your finished project!
Have a customer that wants some of their entries into dinning room and
family room enclosed with casements and trim. In California they're
building these upper end homes with curved outside edge detail on the
drywall. It's a real pain in the ass to deal with. Anyone know if a trim
molding is available to deal with this? I have not been able to find
anything and just wonder if anyone has. I asked if I could use right angles
instead and they were adamant about keeping this detail. Guess I could
handle it like the base trim, (cutting small piece at 22 1/2 degree) and
make it myself. I have posted pics on a.b.p.woodworking for clarification
along with a dinning room I just finished.
