Step 2: Using your jigsaw cut a curve in the 2x6  to create the middle of the arch, (cut from 2" and cut the curve to make the arch 5" in length) and attach to the 2x3 side braces using a Kreg Jig on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. The 2x8 should be flush with the front of the 2x3 side braces.

 

Step 3: Attach the 2x2 (35") bottom brace to the window arch using a Kreg Jig on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. Be sure to put the pocket holes on the side of the arch that will be facing the wall.

Step 4: Attach the 1x3 (61") back support to the window arch using a brad nailer, wood glue and finish nails. The 2x3 side supports and the 1x3 back support should be flush with each other.

Step 5: Attach the two 1x8 (14") supports to the window arch using a Kreg Jig on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. 1x8 supports should be flush with 2x3 supports.

Step 6: Attach 1x2 (50.5") support piece to 1x3, using a brad nailer, wood glue and finish nails. 1x2 should be flush with the 1x6 arc piece.

Step 7: Attach 1x6 (5.5") piece to 1x8 using a brad nailer, wood glue and finish nails. 1x6 piece should fit in between the 1x2 support piece and bottom 1x2 support.

Step 8: Cut out two pieces of plywood for the window frames.

Step 9: Attach 1x3 (50.5") pieces to plywood using a brad nailer, wood glue and finish nails.

Step 10: Attach middle 1x3 (10.25") pieces to the panel door.

Step 11: Attach window frames to the opening of the window arch using hinges of your choice.

and there you have it!! Lovely décor window arch frame!! Christine (cottageonlex) really hit the nail on the head with her lovely décor!  Be sure to share your builds with @smashigdiy!
