storm door

I am building a storm door with a radius top which has a 19 inch radius. the material is solid mahogany a full one inch thick. The arched top and the sliles are 41/2 inches wide. I would like to joim the top to the stiles with 3/8 inch thickk loose tenons extending into both the top and the stile 1i/4 inc each. How can I clamp the curved arch to the stile?

Generally the styles are the full length of the door and the top would be between them so clamping would be no problem as they would run across the width of the door.

If I read you post correctly your arched top is sitting on the top of the styles. In that case cut some plywood to match the top of the curve and use that to clamp against.

I use a Jorgie hand screw clamp on the curved part aligned so it can be used as a cleat to pull the joint together with another clamp. You could use a Jorgie on both parts, and clamp front and back with another clamp.
