I’ve noticed I’ve been having a problem with my bentwood rings, I sand both tips down as they should be etch but when the rings are coiled and held together then cleaned up I’ve noticed a certain area on the rings are either too thin or too thick on the band, how can I combat this?

Best way to do that is to use two different color wood and intentionally sand the sides to show the contrast. On the surface, if the contrasting color show up, thin (taper) that section of the ring to serve as the bottom.
