Practical Geometry Lesson 4b - The Old First Church







The circle, the daisy wheel, governs the design and frame for the Old First Church.
The circle was often used for the top of the window in the 19th century as well as just for decoration.  
I am sorry the images are tinged with green. This is one more presentation skill I have not quite mastered. Another proof reading is also necessary.

PRACTICAL GEOMETRY - Lesson 3








The drawing of 'stepping off' is from Audels Carpenters and Builders Guide, NYC, 1923, p.640.

The holes in the daisy wheel are lower left, center, upper right.  There are others which do not photograph as well. This sheathing board was given to me by the crew that deconstructed the barns. It travels with me when I present on Practical Geometry.
