    Default Matching old moulding trim on a window

    I own a house built in 1870. The front door has gabled(rounded) shaped windows. Over the years the molding over the window has fallen off and is lost. About two feet of it is missing. I went to our neighborhood lumber yard and they had some molding that was close(but no cigar)...but it turns out it is kiln dried and kiln dried lumber won't steam and bend to match the curve of the windows. So how do I get something to match the old wood molding that I can bend to fit the landmarked windows?

    thanks for the help!
