How smooth does the inside need to be? Do you have access to a lathe?

Since I do have access to a lathe, I would simply cut staves 5” tall, and glue them into a ring/short column. I would go with 12 staves to keep the angle easy to cut and to keep gluing easy. Each stave is cut at 15° (360°/12/2).

With a lathe, it’s a simple matter to round the inside and outside. Without a lathe, you would have to decide if the flats would cause airflow issues.
