How to draw any spider using the Intuitive Geometry method

How to draw any spider Fig 1

At any point (A) draw a circle of any size. Find any point on the circumference (B) and draw a circle with the same radius (AB).


How to draw any spider Fig 2

Continue around drawing a circle at any new intersection on the circumference (C etc.). Find points D & E, connect them with a straight line to divide the circle in half. Find points F & G and mark them.


How to draw any spider Fig 3
