and the way I had tried my best and w/ very hard efforts putting, anywhich way I could,.. ( Though, I had not solved it )

Try,.. any technical guys here, on this very easy and simple looking one.

Draw a square on a paper ( say 4 inch of each sides ) , draw inside it, an another square of say 1 inch of each sides, exactly centered
( means, both the diagonals of both the squares, have the same mid-point ) .
No other lines joined from any corner to any corner, or No other lines at all - just one square, centered inside another big square )


Now, if this picture is the look of the front view as well as top view ( Front Elevation and Plan ) of a single object / wooden pattern,..
