How to measure the diameter of the circle ceiling:
Different from a perfect circle, any oval or elliptic shape has different segments with different curve values,While the top of the arch has a more moderate curve, the left and right hand sides of the shape will typically have a sharper more strong of a curve. They can not be represented by one radius or one set of "rise" and "opening".
Please create a template from paper or cardboard that will outline the borderline of the curve. Templates can be sent to :

A. Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation. B. Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
A. Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. 1. Cutting: Material can be cut, fitted, shaped, and sanded with standard woodworking equipment. Carbide tipped fine tooth blades are recommended. 2. Fitting: The center of preformed radius moldings should be positioned and fastened in the center of the curve, then trimmed at both ends. 3. Fastening: The use of construction adhesive or mastic type adhesive glues and pneumatic pin nailing is recommended. Use of tape or clamps may be helpful in securing material in position while adhesives bond. a. Nails should be kept to a minimum of 3/8" from any edge of moldings Nailing too close to the edge of the molding will push the edge and will create unsightly waves on the finished edge. b. Nails should be kept to a minimum - no closer than 6" between nails. Nailing too close between nails will also create an uneven finish. c. Never use staples as a method to fasten or nail material.
A. Never paint or stain prior to installation. The installation involves handling and flexing the molding to fit and it might creates cracks on the paint. Watery or transparent paints and stains do not work well. Test all paints and stains for compatibility and desired results. B. When using latex or water-based paints: 1. Primer coats are not recommended. However, water-based primers such as Min wax Water-Based, Pre-Stain wood conditioner or Kilz, will not affect final finish. 2. Brush and/or spray applications are acceptable. C. When using Alkyd Enamel or oil-based paints: 1. A solvent-based pre-conditioner such as Min wax Wood Pre-Conditioner is recommended. Additional drying time may be necessary. Alkyd enamel and oil-based paints may not dry properly if an undercoat primer is not used. 2. Brush application is preferable. D. When using stains: 1. Water-based stains are recommended 2. Apply with brush or rag and wipe off. The stain may be wiped on to enhance grain patterns. 3. A water-based sealant such as Min wax Water Base Wood Conditioner, may be applied to reduce blotching and enhance final finish.
