I would not carve it. I would make a box with the arcs on the sides. I would then take 1/4” (or less) wood and do I would steam bend that upper piece and glue it to the box. Finally cut the circle hole and the rabbet around it.
For a different lens, all you would have to do is add an extra box with square sides underneath to increase the distance to focal plane.
