Compound Curve Elliptical Openings

Millwork project by: R.F. McManus & Company Charlestown, MA

Curved moulding components supplied by Custom Curved Mouldings.

These elliptical archways were built to accommodate the curve of the wall in this oval dining room. That means all the poplar components had to be built to curve in two directions, both to match the shape of the elliptical opening and to conform to the curved wall surface. We refer to these types of mouldings as being “compound curve”.
