The main pieces of the barrel have been obtained- 8" of 5" aluminum pipe, and 2-1/2" of 8" pipe.
The tape indicates the cut lines. The ball was originally made in two hemispheres welded together and
the seam ground down, so I tried to align everything to that "equator". The welding was somewhat sloppy,
and the seam was easy to locate. The cut line 90 degrees to that, was done strictly by eye.
The Tang can is just a stand to hold the ball while measuring and cutting.
