Building the niches from M.D.F. provided a number of advantages over

all the corners. It also permitted us to build the arches in the shop, and have them become part of the
To build the arches, we used a flexible M.D.F. This is a great material for this type of
application. It has kerfs at regular intervals which permit a smooth flowing bend, even on tight radii, as seen
in photo three. As you can see the construction details are pretty simple, yet effective. The face piece curves
can be cut with a band saw or a jig saw.
The M.D.F. vertical particans are three sided. We mounted the particans to two by fours which were
fastened to the walls, with both construction adhesive and anchors. This made installing them simple. The arches
were installed at the same time, becoming part of the entire assembly. As the units would have crown moldings
the tops didn't need to be tight to the ceiling. This gave us a little room for adjustment.
