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.
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

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.
