They do make bendable molding – but it COSTS a lot of money. What is the size – 2 1/4” ? What about stacking your wood to that height, and cut the diameter. Then run a cove molding cutter on a router table?

Oops – just saw the height. Make that 3 1/4”. It would be the same principle. As I recall, you are going to paint it – correct? Should blend in then.

Make a 11” radius soak, your stock and bend it a little at a time.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I have used the bendable molding your talking about and yes it is very, very expensive I think I paid $70.00 for 2 36” pieces of colonial trim for over a round top window. Basically its some kind of composition and its a little on the heavy side. I’m still at a loss, I may just go simple and lay in my own design that consists of 5 pieces, I came across a guy that gave me an idea but its kind of hard to explain. I saved the text so I will post it. I cant remember who it was but it was a guy on LJs. It seems like a wast of molding though because you have to use 2 X the molding and crown is a bit pricey.

My table saw blade is 1/8” thick, therefore, all the arch moldings were in multiples of 1/8”, i.e. 2 1/4’’ & 1 1/2”. For each arch and/or curved molding, it requires two (2) pieces. These two pieces were marked on their backs with either 1 or 2 stripes. I set the saw fence to the width of the molding. Then I moved the fence 1/8” closer the blade and cut 1/8” off molding #1. Then I moved the fence another 1/8”
Towards the blade and cut a 1/8” strip off molding #2. This corresponds to the first cut on molding #1. I repeated this process by: alternating moldings #1 & #2: moving the fence 1/8” towards the blade after each cut, until both moldings were reduced to a series of 1/8” strips. I reassembled the molding strips starting with the first cut on molding #2, then #1, #2,#1,#2…….......#1,#2,#1.
Before glue up, the strips were soaked in warm water, I didn’t want any breakage. I clamped them in their form to dry. After a major mistake, of gluing up too many strips at a time, I went to gluing no more than 4 strips at a time, brad nailing to prevent slippage, and wiping the glue squeeze out at this time.

Or turn stock on the lathe. It doesn’t have to be solid, using some creative tecniques. I do this for crown and base in homes with radiused wall corners.

Still no idea. I guess it will be just a flat piece of molding for a while I got the other 1/4 round shelf allmost done and starting on the last shelf.

Well I came up with an idea. I think I will try to cut out a 1” board and run it on the router to fit the 1/4 round shelves.
I have posted the whole project on my web site. Sandhill wood works. I hope to give it a try after the last book case is installed in a few days
