This is a set of two wall niches to display art or figures in the wall. I made this set for a coworker who gave me the dimensions to go by that would fit his wall space. They are to be painted to match his trim. It was my first attempt at making curved molding.

Great inspiration for all kinds of projects! These are just so fine. I know it has to happen but I hate hearing that these have to be painted, they look so beautiful just the way they are. Great job!

The curved molding was cut from a 7.5” wide board planed down to 1/2” thick. The radius’s were drawn with a compass and they were cut out. I then ran them over a round nose router bit on the table to make the groves. the edges of the molding are cut with a round over/beading bit. The direction of the grain on the large niche will show you the direction of the board that it was cut from.
