A 10 ft. segment cut out of a 12’ radius at 26 inches deep/wide to be used as top and bottom. Never done this before. Do the uprights/verticals “fan” out causing the shelves to be trapezoids, (sounds stupid after I wrote it), or are the verticals ripped at a slight angle to flush out w/top and base of cabinet or am I wrong on both counts?

Also, how do I make/lay out square cuts in the arc segment? With much, much smaller segments I’d place it against the fence of slide saw, mark outer and inner lines and simply spin it to where I needed to be.

Hope this question makes sense.

Having trouble visualizing what you want to accomplish. Can you post a sketch of picture of similar project?

I think the top and bottom look the above?

120” long, 26” at deepest of a 144” radius.

That’s pretty much it, but not squared off on the inside. Something like this: http://www.phoenixmillwork.net/gallery.html?gallery=Shop%20Profile

The differences to the link are that the radius is more, inside will be functionable, shelves, a sink, place for an oven, toe kick

The uprights can be either, depends on how you want unit to look.

The inner uprights are fanned and the outer are straight
