Showing some photos of some of the tools and methods I use to glue up rings. I know there is many. I sure miss my drum sander, I don't have space to replace it. I need a planer, maybe later, not for the rings. I have a large sink cut out you can see laying on top of my portable table saw. On the Vicmarc you can see the funnels I use. I like this method better than the pipe and bar clamps which I have.

Interesting method of gluing rings. How much pressure do you put on the segments ? I am thinking just a little too much and the segments will start popping out of place.

What do the funnels, or cones, do for you ? Center the ring for gluing to the previous ring ?

I took a segmented class from Curt Theobald in 2003 and he used funnels, that's where the big red one came from. I control the pressure and don't overdo it. I use calipers and mark where the points are. Line up is near perfect as long as the rings are round. I use gouge or large skew or sanding block then check for any daylight as I go.
It goes like this a glue block, then a solid base all sized on the lathe and then start with your rings as per design. It's rare if I over 10" in the ring dia. Same for height.
You need a live center with a 3/4" thread to mount the funnels. George Troy
