The height is a bit of a challenge, but for something like that the first thing I think of is rings of glued up trapezoids (probably 8 per ring). Each ring is glued to another, offset by 1/2 segment for strength. A router with a circle template would get the inside (and outside if needed) perfectly round to a precise dimension. I’d probably do the routing on two-layer (1-1/2” for 3/4” stock) to keep within the capacity of a typical bit. Basically this is how segmented vase turnings start out.
