Reconstruction of theWilloughby Hedge 5-06-2016 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct four inscribed pentagons (regular 5-sided polygons) of circle 1, one pointing up, one pointing down, one pointing to the left, and one pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Draw the twenty rays of pentagons 2, from the center of circle 1 to the angular points. Number these rays 1 - 20 clockwise, starting at the top. These numbers will denote the angular points as well. | ||||

4. |
Draw two lines, from angular point nr. 11, to angular points nrs. 3 and 19, respectively. | ||||

5. |
Draw two lines, from angular point nr. 1, to the intersections of rays nrs. 7 and 15 with lines 4. | ||||

6. |
Draw two lines, from angular point nr. 1, to the intersections of rays nrs. 4 and 18 with lines 4. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of rays nrs. 3 and 19 with lines 5. | ||||

8. |
Draw the connecting line between the lower end-points of lines 5. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of rays nrs. 9 and 13 with line 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed decagon (regular ten-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

11. |
Copy lines 5 and 6 nine times, by repeating steps 5 and 6 (and the necessary previous steps) with respect to the other angular points of decagon 10. | ||||

12. |
Construct the circumscribed decagon of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

13. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of decagon 12. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 7, 9, and 13, and lines 5, 6, and 11, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
