Re: Wood Movement, Large Dowels

Cooper joint a wooden tube out of perhaps six or eight staves around 12 - 16 mm thick and assemble using masking tape and/or rubber bands using urea formaldehyde adhesive, a non-creeper, although PVA type glue would probably do. Spin it to size on a lathe. That might do the trick, although I'm not sure wood is the right choice for all the expansion contraction reasons you mention, even in a coopered item. Slainte.
