|||||

1. |
Draw a circle. | ||||

2. |
Draw the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

3. |
Construct the circumscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing downwards. | ||||

4a. |
Construct the circumscribed nonagon (regular 9-sided polygon) of equilateral triangle 3, such that angular points of both coincide, as shown. | ||||

4b. |
Construct the other two equilateral triangles, inscribed in nonagon 4a, the angular points of which coincide also with those of the nonagon, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Draw the nine rays of nonagon 4a. | ||||

6. |
Draw the diagonals of nonagon 4a, connecting every second angular point. | ||||

7. |
From the intersections of rays 5 and diagonals 6 of nonagon 4a (forming another nonagon in itself), draw the corresponding diagonals, parallel to diagonals 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric with circle 1, passing through the intersections of diagonals 7 and sides of equilateral triangles 3 and 4b, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of hexagon 9. | ||||

11. |
Extend rays numbered "3" and "5" (counterclockwise from the horizontal centerline on the right), until they meet circle 8 at the opposite side, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Draw a line connecting the end-points of the extended rays and a line connecting the end-points of the two rays, mirrored in relation to the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of lines 12, as shown. | ||||

14. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 8, pointing down. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of the sides of triangle 14 and rays 5. | ||||

16. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of rays "3" and "7" (see step 11) and circle 13, as shown. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 16. | ||||

18. |
Construct the inscribed nonagon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

19. |
Draw the connecting line between the lower intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, and the intersection of nonagon 18 and ray "2", as shown. | ||||

20. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 19. | ||||

21. |
Copy circle 8 two times, one each to the intersections of circle 1 with rays "1" and "6", as shown. | ||||

22. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of circles 21 closest to circle 1, as shown. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 8 another time to the intersection of circle 22 and ray "8". Copy circle 10 to the intersection of circle 22 and ray "7", as shown. | ||||

24. |
Clip off the parts of circles 23 outside circle 1 up to their mutual intersection inside circle 1, as shown. | ||||

25. |
Copy circle 20 to the intersection of (the remainder of) copied circle 8 (step 23) and circle 15, as shown. | ||||

26. |
Copy circle 20 another time to the upper left intersection of circle 25 and circle 15, as shown. | ||||

27. |
Repeat steps 23 through 26 for all other pairs of (consecutive) rays, nine times in total. | ||||

28. |
Circles 1, 8, 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 26 and 27 together form all the parts for the reconstruction. | ||||

29. |
Removing all elements not present in the final formation and making black relevant parts denoting standing crop, finishes the reconstruction of the 2001 Woodborough Hill (2) formation. | ||||
