Reconstruction of the
Cake Wood 9-07-2022 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of hexagon 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side.

4. Copy circle 3 to the center of circle 1.

5. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 4, pointing down. Extend its righthand side upwards upto hexagon 2.

6. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of hexagon 2 and extended line 5, passing through the righthand intersection of triangle 5 and the horizontal centerline.

7. Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 6 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline.

8. Draw a line parallel to extended line 5, from the righthand intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline, upto line 7.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of lines 7 and 8.

10. Draw a line parallel to line 7, from the intersection of extended line 5 and circle 9, downto the horizontal centerline.

11. Extend the lefthand side of triangle 5 downwards downto hexagon 2.

12. Construct a circle tangent to line 11, tangent to the righthand side of triangle 5, and tangent to the horizontal centerline.

13. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 12, pointing down. Extend its righthand side upwards upto line 10.

14. Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the intersection of extended line 13 and line 10.

15. Draw a line parallel to line 7, from the intersection of line 8 and circle 14, downto the horizontal centerline.

16. Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersection of triangle 5 and the intersection of line 7, both with the horizontal centerline.

17. Remove from extended line 5, lines 7, and 8, extended line 13, and lines 15, and 16, all redundant parts...

18. ...such that this pattern remains.

19. Copy pattern 18 four times, while rotating around the center of circle 1, with respect to the other angular points of hexagon 2, except the lower one, as shown.

20. Copy the upper lefthand pattern 19 as a whole, from its lower righthand angular point, to the intersection of line 11 and hexagon 2, as shown.

21. Construct the circumscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing up.

22. Patterns 18, 19, and 20, and hexagon 21, together, make up the final reconstruction.
