  1. Steve, I love your stuff.

    One way to do this is how many segmented turners glue up their segmented blanks. (Pardon me if I post this too soon, I started typing it before I finished watching the whole video…)

    1) Lay all the slats out with the narrower end face down and the wider end edges all touching snugly (just as they will be when the project is complete.
    2) Run several pieces of tape across the slats perpendicular to the cuts.
    3) Flip the project over and glue in the valleys created by the angled cuts.
    4) Roll the project into shape…The tape on the outside should give you ample clamping pressure around the curve with only light pressure on the ends keeping it in shape.
