Its not simply a squat cylinder which would have two sharp edges

Rather it is a "filled"  in toriod - outer edge is curved in both
as a toriod. There is no inner edge and because the top and bottom
discs meet the outer curve at a tangent there is no edge there either.

email is so one dimensional

I'm trying to make a skeleton out of plywood - essentially a series
of horizontal rings of plywood set about 1" apart with the diameter
of each ring less than its neighbour, so that I have the skeleton
which I will then cover with aluminium foil tape.

I'll post with pictures on my website when I'm sure its going to work.


Thats the best I can do in ascii.
