Custom acrylic tank

Hello everyone! I'm thinking about building a custom, as few seams as possible, acrylic tank. I would like all 4 corners to be seamless and rounded so my question is...has anyone made a tank with an exterior from one full sheet? It would leave one seam, most likely in the center of the rear that I would reinforce with the skimmer location. I would probably use a 2" euro brace along the top as well but go around the skimmer so I can still access it. The outside dimensions would be something like 20"L x 8"W x 10"T (just over 8 gallons) using 1/4" acrylic.
The attached image is as close to a mock up as I can make on my phone lol and it doesn't show the euro brace.
