I posted this yesterday but it got lost or removed don’t ask me why.
anyway here it is again and it is simple .
lay out the end and centre points of the arch and drive in nails at these locations
lay the sticks ( lath ) as shown against the nails and connect the sticks at the centre point
remove the centre nail and slide the stick assembly to one of the end points and insert a marker into the crotch of the two sticks
slide the stick assembly from endpoint to endpoint holding the marker firmly in place
there is the arch which is actualy a section of a large circle which with a trammel method would require a very large trammel to draw
a bent lath can also be used to do this but i find that it will not bend in a uniform arch and is therefor not as accurate as this method
follow the pics for the process
