More Tapered Rings *PIC*

Malcolm Tibbetts
>I just viewed Bill Youngblood’s piece (posted below) and I thought that I’d share another example of my “tapered ring” technique. This piece was initially assembled with double-sided tape into a series of 10” long cones. The outsides were turned smooth and the insides were turned to consistent wall thickness. Then the rings were passed through a drum sander at an angle on both sides in order to create tapered rings. The final glued assembly was sanded inside as it was put together and the outside was “smoothed” after assembly. The title, “Gabriel’s Dilemma” is open to your own interpretation.
