The wood was cut into 1/8" strips.  One 8" board would yield a 4" wide stack of strips that I keep in the same order as they were cut from the board.  Then I make an arch frame from MDF to match the opening.  Then I bend glue and clamp each strip to the frame.  Once the glue sets I plane the bend to resemble a bent flat board.  Then I make a table fixture on the center bars of the legacy.  This fixture will have a track made of more MDF (love that stuff) and a couple of feather boards to keep you honest.  Use a piece of the straight, off the shelf molding or one that you have created for the job and set each pass up with a router bit that best matches the sample piece.  After multiple passes and bits, a little touch up sanding and a moment of pride is in order.  I am sending a pic of some more molding and another jig that I came up with to further change the angle of the z axis.  Also will send a pic of a curved 7-1/2",  13" radius, Ash hand rail that was made the jig and the center table tracks.
