How can I build this circular desk without a frame???


I'm looking for ideas on how to build an 11 foot 3/4 circle reception desk. I have my drawings posted at Trimlinedale.tripod.com. It's at the bottom of the "Our Products" page. I have to build it in sections to get it in the door, it leans out 10 degrees, and I want to build it as an exoskeleton, so I can maximize the internal work area. Can I wrap 1/4" plywood around hardwood supports? Can I build it without a bottom? This is going to be a portfolio piece for us, so I want it to be awesome. Any ideas would be welcomed. Thanks, DALE I already have a 50% downpayment, so it's getting built!

All I see at the bottom of your Our Products page are some blinkies for screen savers.
You really ought to consider a real Web site if you're going to make a commercial go of it.
Oh, and in case I think I know what you are saying, build a radius inner panel that's vertical. Attach to that on the outer side some tapered strips and attach the cantilevered panel to that.
At least that what I'm thinking you are wanting based on the screen savers.

I couldn't find your drawings on the web site either. I don't think you will have any problem bending the 1/4" around the radius. I've used it around 4' radius without much problem. If you have a frame with a radius top and bottom and the hardwood supports between them you should be ok. If I understand you correctly, the front (which will be wrapped with the 1/4") will lean out. This makes the top radius larger than the bottom radius. That will add a certain degree of difficulty to cutting the 1/4" in the right shape prior to installing it. Since you're building in sections, once you get the first piece you should be good to go.
If I don't understand what you're doing here.........never mind.
