The Gauge for the Golden Section
The golden section occurs in nature and in the human body, but also in art and architecture. This has been a well‐known design rule since ancient times. The division ratio of this theory is called a balanced guideline and is perceived by humans as particularly harmonious.
With an appropriate gauge, objects can be arranged in a golden section on a given surface and thus create a harmonious image. The gauge also serves to measure simple length ratios in the golden section.
So it is worthwhile to recreate the golden section gauge and thus create a harmonious environment. At the beginning we want to briefly explain the theory to you.
|Any kind of wood, e.g. Bamboo cutting board (20x30x0,08cm)
|M3 Threaded Rods
|Boiled Linseed Oil
Step 5: Assembling the Gauge
Two pieces of the collar nuts are connected in a joint with a piece of M3 threaded rod.
The strips are assembled according to the template.
