We start with a given circle.
|1. Using a straightedge, draw any two chords of the circle. For greatest accuracy, avoid chords that are nearly parallel.|
|2. Construct the perpendicular bisector of one of the chords using the method described in Constructing a perpendicular bisector of a line segment|
|3. Repeat for the other chord|
|4. The point where the two lines intersect is the center C of the circle.|
