Reconstruction of theGurston Ashes 23-07-2018 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 3, pointing to the right. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 3, pointing to the right. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed nonagon (regular 9-sided polygon) of circle 3, pointing to the right. | ||||

7. |
Call the top of square 4: A, its righthand angular point: B, the lower righthand angular point of hexagon 5: C, and the leftmost upper angular point of nonagon 6: D. Draw two connecting lines, between A and D, and between C and D. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at C, passing through the lower righthand intersections of hexagon 5 and nonagon 6. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 8 three times, to A, B, and D. | ||||

11. |
Construct four lines, parallel to the sides of, and inside quadrangle ABCD, tangent to circles 8 and 10, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered at A, passing through the intersection of the upper righthand side of square 4 and the upper lefthand side of nonagon 6. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 three times, to B, C, and D. | ||||

14. |
Construct four lines, similar to lines 11, but tangent to circles 12 and 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at A, passing through the intersection of the upper righthand side of square 4 and the upper side of hexagon 5. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle centered at A, tangent to circle 1 at the upper side. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 17 to the righthand intersection of circle 16 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 18 at the lefthand side. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1, 9, 16, and 19, square 4, hexagon 6, and lines 7, 11, and 14, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
