## laying out Steve Latta's lotus flower

I wrote a short note based on my experience in trying to make Steve Latta’s lotus flower as a string inlay project. In the note, I discuss one of the first steps in the project—locating 10 equally spaced points on a circle where the tips of the leaves are to be placed. The note can be read by clicking here.
