    Quizzical Pursuit - The Architecture Puzzler

    by Dave Guadagni

    Answer for Last Week's Puzzler

    If you had the tools and the inclination you could bend a 1/8" (0.32 cm.) thick strip of cherry wood into a hoop with a diameter of approximately 11" (27.94 cm.). What diameter hoop could you make with the same thickness of red oak? With western red cedar?

    Answer: 

    You could make a hoop approximately 8" (20.32 cm.) in diameter for red oak and 16" (40.64 cm.) for western red cedar.
