Reconstruction of the
Savernake Forest 8-07-2006 formation

1. Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines.

2. Copy circle 1 three times, to its own lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and to the corresponding intersections of successively copied circles, as shown.

3. Copy circle 1 to the lefthand intersection of the leftmost circle 2 and the horizontal centerline.

4. Copy circle 1 sixteen times, to the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, and to the corresponding intersections of successively copied circles, as shown.

5. Copy circle 1 to the lefthand intersection of the leftmost circle 4 and the horizontal centerline.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 5 at the lefthand side.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 5.

8. Construct a two-points circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline), with the points at the centers of circles 3 and 5.

9. Construct a two-points circle, the first point at the center of circle 5, the second point at the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline.

10. Copy circle 9 two times, to the intersections of circle 7 and the vertical centerline. Move the upper circle (copy and delete original) to its own lower, the lower circle to its own upper intersection with the vertical centerline.

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the righthand side.

12. Copy circle 11 two times, to the centers of circles 10.

13. Construct the circumscribed square of circle 1, with its sides horizontal and vertical.

14. Construct the circumscribed circle of square 13.

15. Copy circle 14 to the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline.

16. Copy circles 3 and 15 as one single unit three times, taking the center of circle 3 as a reference, to the lefthand intersection of circle 15 and the horizontal centerline, and to the corresponding intersections of the successively copied circles, as shown.

17. Construct six two-points circles, all with one point at the lefthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline, the other points at the centers of all copied circles 16.

18. Copy circle 1 to the center of circle 8. Move this circle to its own lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline.

19. Copy circle 14 to the center of circle 8. Move this circle to its own lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline.

20. Copy circle 14 to the lefthand intersection of circle 18 and the horizontal centerline.

21. Construct a two-points circle, the first point at the lefthand intersection of circle 18, the second point at the righthand intersection of circle 20, both with the horizontal centerline.

22. Construct a two-points circle, the first point at the lefthand intersection of circle 18, the second point at the lefthand intersection of circle 19, both with the horizontal centerline.

23. Copy circles 21 and 22 as one single unit two times, taking the righthand intersection of circle 21 and the horizontal centerline as a reference, to the lefthand intersection of circle 22 and the horizontal centerline, and to the corresponding intersection of the copied circles, as shown.

24. Construct four two-points circles, all with one point at the righthand intersection of circle 18, the other points at the lefthand intersections of circles 23, all with the horizontal centerline.

25. Copy circles 8, 9, 17, 18, 19 and 24 as one single unit, taking the righthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline as a reference, to the corresponding intersection of circle 7.

26. Copy circle 1 two times, to the center of upper circle 10, and to the lower intersection of upper circle 12 and the vertical centerline.

27. Copy circle 14 two times, to the lower intersections of circles 26 and the vertical centerline.

28. Construct two circles concentric to upper circle 10, tangent to both circles 27 at the lower sides.

29. Copy both circles 28 to the center of the lower circle 10.

30. Circles 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 28 and 29 make up the final reconstruction.
