This is the inside view of the crown wheel with the start of a linseed based finish. What a beauty eh?
But how did we bend a 4 foot diameter wood ring like that? well no bending actually occured on this part of the yurt. Guess how it was done?
On the band saw jed cut the circular blade then the ring was mounted.
Then the blade was welded back to a loop.
And that’s how we got a smooth cut ring.
