Reconstruction of the
Wayland's Smithy 4-08-2023 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. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing down.

4. Construct a circle centered at the top of triangle 2, passing through the upper righthand intersection of triangles 2 and 3.

5. Copy circle 4 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 4 at the upper side.

7. Construct two inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 6, one pointing up, one pointing down.

8. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of the circle, passing through the intersections of triangles 7, pointing to the left.

9. Copy circle 4 to the intersection of the righthand side of triangle 8 and the horizontal centerline.

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

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 4, tangent to circle 10 at the upper side.

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

13. Copy circle 11 to the upper intersection of circle 4 and the vertical centerline, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection.

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

15. Construct a circle concentric to circle 4, tangent to circle 14 at the upper side.

16. Copy circle 15 two times, to the centers of circles 5.

17. Copy circle 11 two times, to the centers of circles 5.

18. Construct three pairs of parallel lines, parallel to the sides of triangle 2, tangent to circles 11 and 17 at both sides.

19. Circles 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 14, 15, and 16, and lines 18, are used for the final reconstruction.

20. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
