The easiest way to accomplish this would be to make some 1/8th inch strips and glue them together against a from using a band clamp to secure it to the form while the glue dries.

The next more wasteful way is to cut the piece from a single piece of wood in the shape of your arc.

The third is to steam bend it, which my attempts to describe would sound confusing at the moment.
