With the glue dry on the two halves of the bowl, I needed to make sure they would mate up properly when glued together.

I use a piece of melamine shelf board with a strip of 80-grit paper glued to it to true the two halves. I shade both ends of the half bowl with a lead pencil and sand until the marks are gone. They actually weren’t very far off, but why take the chance?

I then glued the vertical spacers to the two halves, and glued the halves together. I taped the joints, then used the vise on my bench to clamp the two halves together.

Again, I used plenty of glue and the glue needs to be good and dry before the next step.
