    gaps between rows

    For me it depends on the size of the ring and the thickness i want. When a ring is 12mm thick or so, i use the drumsander to flatten the rings. When gluing them i alwas check on the lathe and sand if necessairy with a board and sandpaper. It must be perfectly flat. I added the picture of a...
