Answer: 
I would say NO for it attaches to wood however to form the archway would require filling the void which is there to split the piece in half for extending the arch width.

Answer: 
You could but I'm not sure how you would blend it into the rest of the wood. You would have a little step at the ends of the arches and you would see the screws unless you recessed them and filled the holes. Also it wouldn't match the rest of the wood. If you used filler and painted it you could probably make it look good. You can cover anything with drywall and enough mud!

Answer: 
You get 2 3 1/2" x 13" radius prefab'd arches to make 1 arch kit per box. Each half also comes with a split cut feature which allows you the option to deepen the arch if your wall depth is greater than 3 1/2" (Standard 2x4 openings) See photo gallery

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing results ! Far easier than trying to build your own. The installed in about 10 minutes and look great. The hardest part of the whole project was the drywall, mudding and texture, I recommend using 1/4 inch drywall for the curved part of the arch. Wet the backing and let it sit for a while. bend it into place and screw it in. Worked like a charm. November 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product worked as described Very nice product to use. I found the directions to be very easy to understand. The price was right, and I was able to achieve the results exactly as I had wanted. My family think it looks great. December 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must for DIY'ers Great product for DIY'ers or Contractors takes the guess work out & and will save you $$$. I would recommend this Archway system, just you tube it and see. It took me about a week in my spare time from demo to primer. February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Easy! Perfect Corners! I put a wall in my entryway, and I wanted a rounded door frame. Basically I could only find two options: A full rounded arch piece for around $300 or this simple corner kit for $20. It was an easy choice for me. The kit is super simple (just two pieces of wood) and fool-proof to install. I built a square doorway, then tacked these pieces up into the corners, and that was it. Super easy! I've never built a wall or doorway before, and never hung drywall before. But I did this project by myself and it was a since. Great buy! July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Arch product PERIOD Extremely quick and easy install. Remodel or new construction this is your archway remedy. Great paper instructions come in the box and there's a video from the company of you're still not sure. May 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome product. Very easy. Quick results. Like I said, Awesome product. Very easy. Quick results. Very inexpensive. March 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install, cheap price, high quality materials... The Universal Arch Kit was much easier to install than I expected. I am not a handyman by any means, but this product made me look like one! I checked with a local contractor to have an archway built for my hallway and wasn't in my budget, this product saved me half the cost and didn't take much time to install. November 19, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good but installation instructions had one issue. These are a great help if you want to build arches in your home. They are made of solid materials and there are PDF's and videos online that you can watch to help you install. The only issue I have is with their instructions on how to bend the sheet rock. They just show the guy wetting the back a little and then it bends right up. No way! I let the water soak in and it still wouldn't bend. I researched it and the only way to bed sheet rock seems to be if you buy 1/4" flexible sheet rock. I had to make cuts in the back every inch to bend it up. I also noticed on the sheet rock video that the guy just put a line of screws down the middle of the sheet rock which I thought was not very smart, and next thing there was a cut in the movie and he had them on both sides. That was just amusing though. January 22, 2013
