Reconstruction of the
Woodcote Lane 18-07-2021 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular six-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing to the right.

4. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of hexagons 2 and 3.

5. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 4, pointing up.

6. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 5.

7. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of hexagon 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 4 at the righthand side.

8. Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 6 and the horizontal centerline.

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

10. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 9, pointing up.

11. Construct a circle passing through the intersections of triangle 10 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 9 at the lower side.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the upper side.

13. Copy circle 11 to the center of circle 1.

14. Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 13 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the righthand side of triangle 10.

15. Copy circle 14 to the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline.

16. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the upper side.

17. Draw the connecting line between the upper intersections of circles 4 and 16 with the vertical centerline, and divide this line into seven equal parts. Number the nodes 1 - 6 from top to bottom.

18. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 17 nr. 5.

19. Construct four circles concentric to circle 1, passing through nodes 17 nrs. 1 - 4.

20. Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the upper intersections of circles 16 and 18 with the vertical centerline.

21. Copy circle 20 to the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline.

22. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 21 at the lower side.

23. Construct the inscribed regular 150-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing up.

24. Draw the 150 rays of polygon 23, from the center to the angular points. Number the rays 1 - 150 clockwise, starting at the one next to the top to the right.

25. Remove all redundant parts from circles 4, 18, 19, and 22, and from rays 24 nrs. 146 - 150, and nrs. 1 - 25, such that...

26. ...this pattern remains.

27. Repeat all necessary steps to copy and rotate pattern 26 five times, with respect to the other angular points of hexagon 2, as shown.

28. Remove all redundant parts from circles 6, 9, 12, 13, and 16, and from rays 24 nrs. 46, 51, 88, 95, and 100, such that...

29. ...this pattern remains.

30. Circle 1, and patterns 26, 27, and 29, together, make up the final reconstruction.
