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

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

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

4. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 3, with sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 5, pointing up. | ||||

7. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 7, with sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

9. |
Draw two lines, from the top of square 2 to the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of square 8. | ||||

10. |
Repeat step 9 for the other corresponding angular points of squares 2 and 8. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 7 and the vertical centerline, passing through the upper righthand angular point of square 8. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the righthand angular point of square 2. | ||||

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

14. |
Copy circle 11 two times, to the intersections of circle 13 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of circle 12 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 3 at the righthand side. | ||||

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

17. |
Copy circle 15 eight times, to the angular points of squares 2 and 8. | ||||

18. |
Construct eight lines parallel to lines 9 and 10, tangent to circles 17 at the outer sides, as shown. | ||||

19. |
Circles 3, 14, and 16, and lines 9, 10, and 18, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
