Sanding Tip #3

Remember to check your rings for flatness before gluing them up. While individual rings have some flex, when it comes to gluing together two ring sets, or gluing a ring set to its base, the lack of flex may result in small gaps, despite pressure from the bowl press. The easiest way to be sure that the gluing faces are flat is to glue a piece of sandpaper, about 150 grit, to a flat surface, such as a granite tile. Use temporary adhesive so you can change the paper. Then rub the surface on the sandpaper and that should solve the problem.
