Couple of ways. Using a piloted bit on a prepared piece, or making a
template for use with guides. Generally easier in the long run to use the
guide and run it on a table. That way you smooth a 1/4 ply template edge
and use a flush-cutting bit to smooth the thicker wood.
| Is it possible to cut a curved piece of molding, say for an arch?
| If so, can I do it with a run of the mill router and how?
It is possible - I've done it with a CNC router and I've seen curved
moldings made on both shaper and special-purpose molding machines.

Would flexible, plastic moulding do the job?
I recently put a french door in an arched opening, and plastic quarter-
round worked great to hold the transom lights in place. Granted, it's fake,
but at seven feet off the ground, no one will notice.
The hardest part of the job was getting the miters right at the pointy end
of the window.
