Default Replicating Old Doors

Hello. I am trying to replicate the panel mould on these old doors and was wondering if I will have to make a custom piece of molding for the curved top and bottom portion or it this is something that can be purchased online or at a local store? Here is a picture

If this is something I would need to make, what is the best way to do it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Doc. I look forward to learning from you guys.

Someone recommended that I use a flexible piece of trim. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I would guess that it might be better to build some sort of jig so that I can have the exact same curve on the top and bottom of all four doors. However, I've never built a jig before so I really don't know how I would go about doing it. Any thoughts?

Hi George

I would suggest using the Cathedral type Templates, use it to put down the shape and use a profile bit to put the molding on the stock and than the band saw to remove the molding from the stock..little bit of sanding and you have it.
