Draw a cord through the circle (a line through the circle, but not too close to where you imagine the center to be). With construction techniques, find the perpendicular at the center point of the cord, and draw the perpendicular. Do the same thing again starting with a different cord, and the two perpendiculars will intersect at the center of the circle.
