Here is what I ended up with by not paying close enough attention to the instructions i guess…

If I glue the top on so I can turn the body to it’s final shape, how do I finish the lip?
Or try doing something with the lip, glue it on and then try to finish the lip?

How about just moving the tail stock in to hold the lid on with a live-center, kinda like a jam-chuck? Should hold well enough that you can get the shape of both pretty dang close, then pull off the lid to do any final work on that.

Hi Dave Yep that’s a good idea. Any variation on that would be good…..so I’m staring at it and before I knew it I had it glued. If I make this shape again I think I would use two glue blocks to make the rings and then slap em together. Anyway I was anxious to do the final outside shape.

It turns out that this was a non issue. I just shaped the lip about how I thought then just kept cutting the angle in and the top fell right in. Done deal.
