Take measurements from the wall to the curve at various points and transfer them to the board then draw it in free hand?

As a non-plasterer, could you lay the boards out face down on the floor and transfer the curve that way?

Do one wall at a time and lift/screw them into place as you go.

Hold the board up pencil line over the top then deduct the width off the timber, use a rip of mdf to give you the new inner line. I’ve used upvc trim before to

But the board on the floor then use a laser pen along the ridge of the ceiling pointing down and with the aid of your man servant he,she marks the board,hey presto, do a small tester first.you can get the laser pens from the big pet shop chains,in the moggie section .

This. Wouldn’t even waste time and patience trying to get it bang on. Use this method and get it close. Scrim n fill gaps then skim quickly before anyone see how lazy i am

I think a router with a guide point bit is fastest and most accurate way to go. It looks like you even have a nice piece of trim to catch the inside edge on. (Obviously you'll need some hat track up there for framing)

Joiner in. f**k f**k**g about with that pish.. Might be a dumb question but what is a top hat? I thought it was something a magician wore to make him look like a magician or a knob...
