How do I build a custom arch?

We have some neat arches with an unusual, though not fancy, shape to them between some of the rooms in our 60 year old house. In a future remodel, I'd like to build an identical shape for a new doorway. What is the best technique, including the framing and drywalling? I have decent DIY skills and tools.

Thanks for any help.

Just measure what you've got & copy it. I use like 1/4" drywall for the tops of the arches & flex bead for the outside corners. There's also premade unit you can buy. Might do a google search for those.
