Daren’s Woodworking Tips – Workshop Geometry

This is a great bit of workshop geometry:

If you have an arc that you do not know the radius of – I give him loads of these all the time! Draw a line across the arc to give you distance “a”. Now measure in the centre of “a” the distance “c” . Now you can use this formula to find the radius of the arc.
