Reconstruction of theLong Wood 3-06-2019 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 three times, to the angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle with the upper side of hexagon 4 as its centerline. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 5 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to the lower righthand circle 3 at the upper lefthand side. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of circle 7 and the upper righthand side of hexagon 4. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 three times, to the angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the lower side of triangle 2 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the lower lefthand circle 3 at the righthand side. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the upper intersection of circle 9 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 12 at the upper side. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand angular point of hexagon 4, tangent to circle 13 at the righthand side. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the intersection of circle 7 and the righthand side of triangle 2. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 15 at the lower righthand side. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 16 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 16, and 17, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
