Helpful tip for bowls with wide rings

If you're making a bowl with wide rings--3/8" or more--you can do some pre-sanding of the inside of any particular ring that has marked irregularities before you glue all the rings together.

However--and it's an important consideration--you'll still have to get the inside of all the rings smooth and completely aligned once they are glued up, so this can only be done if you have enough wood left after removing the offending places to continue with the sanding as normally done.

I use this very seldom, but sometimes if access will be a problem, and I really need to clean things up, it's worth considering as an option.
