4. |
Draw the eight rays of octagon 2, from the center to the angular points. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the nearest (upper) side of octagon 2. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle passing through the center of circle 1, and tangent to the upper and lower righthand sides of octagon 2. | ||||

8. |
Draw a line from the center of circle 1 to the upper intersection of circles 5 and 7. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 7 to the intersection of line 8 and circle 3. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper righthand intersection (tangent point) of octagon 2 and circle 3, tangent to the vertical centerline. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 11 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the upper righthand ray 4. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 9. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection (tangent point) of circle 10 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the nearest (righthand) side of octagon 2. | ||||

15. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of circles 1 and 3 with the upper righthand ray 4. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 14 to the center of circle 15. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 15. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 14 to the intersection of circle 17 and the lower righthand ray 4. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 15 to the intersection of circle 17 and the upper lefthand ray 4. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 14 to the lower intersection of circles 17 and 19. | ||||

21. |
Copy circle 15 to the intersection of circle 17 and the lower lefthand ray 4. | ||||

22. |
Copy circle 14 to the lower intersection of circles 17 and 21. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 15 to the lefthand intersection of circle 9 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

24. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, tangent to circle 23 at the righthand side. | ||||

25. |
Circles 1, 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24, and lines 4, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
