milled mdf jig, for forming the metal strip.
Right tools - Often, one has to make his or hers own in order to create accurate/true work.  

Getting into cylinder making!

Next step after forming the ring, is to solder the base. As this image clearly shows, I haven't been very economical with the material.

Flux and solder pellets are placed along the joints, seam. Metal is heated with torch until the hard silver solder melts and finds its way to join the metals together.
