Has anyone ever purchased/installed a pocket door that is arched at the top? I believe I've seen them on web searches. I can't imagine the entire top portion of the door having an arch, since the door would hang on very small section. I'd envision the frame/drywall arched at the top and only the top corner of the door (opposite the pocket side) radiused to match the frame. The remainder of the door (in the pocket) could be a standard config since it's hidden by the arched frame/drywall. I also don't want any cutting in the opposite jamb. The only opening in the jamb would be on the pocket side. I suppose anything is makeable, but has anyone ever heard of something similar to this. Thanx in advance, Steve

The door blank itself is rectangular but the top rail custom made to match the arch shape intended for the trim shape of the openning.
