That is good to know. It is the same pattern I used on the original Acoma, I just changed the profile
Bob:Using Tom Lohman's new process of doing closed segment rings on a open segment glue up jig.
Using the jig to glue ever third segment

Let segment dry
Then insert segment pairs in between

Now completely glued (not perfect but good enough with extra on the ID and OD)

Works good on those thin rings
No clamps no rubber bands
Can stop half way in a ring glue up
Pretty soon, I'm waiting for the ID to open up a little more so the pieces that go on next have more support on the ID. The ID down at the bottom will have to be cut to about 3" ID and then the base tapper cut to blend down to the medallion that will be inserted from underneath.Looking good. When is the first turning planned?
