Default 4 not so easy pieces?

I had thought of a problem that I don't have a clue how (nor likely the skills) to solve. I set about searching for an answer, etc. before I presented it here. While doing so, I came across a different challenge.

Given a circle and classic tools (straight edge, compass, and "pencil"); please divide the circle into four equal pieces.
Child's play, right?
But, here is the twist: The lines drawn to divide the circle must not be radial.

Have fun.
