    I've heard of using paper grocery sacks in such applications but being that thick of paper I would guess you would have to add accordingly.

    Another option is to just glue a couple of inches on the very ends and then cut that section off afterwards. A shallow groove on the inside face helps provide a stop point for glue seep (and a reference for where to cut them). IMHO this is the most pain free method as the paper trick seems to have some issues coming apart (either not or doing so early) for me on occasion. I'm sure someone who has the nack wouldn't have a problem but I'm not that person.

    Grocery sack will work as well as newspaper, pretty east to seperate after turning

    I think the winter must be getting to you Larry, I'm getting worried, you've just had too many questions lately about spinny stuff. Perhaps you should head down south and do some fishing and get away from the cold.

    Heck, Darren, they even use spinney stuff in fishing.

    I wonder which adhesive they use with the paper. I'm guessing something that has reasonable strength but will come apart when dampened---like white glue.
    I wonder what are the pros and cons of the thin double-sided tape Rockler sells?

    What are the turnings going to be used for? If it is like splitting a candlestick into two parts (to mount on a wall) or making a dowel shaped pic frame, the thickness of the separator will not matter.
    If it is something like a lamp column that you want to put a shaft into, it is critical...you want thin or none.

    So whatcha doin'?

    Enjoy,

    Regular wood glue or Elmers white glue.

    I've seen some turners use hot glue for this also. In most of the demos, the initial glue up is done with a glue that will split cleanly. This glue usually won't hold as well as a permanent glue so they glue on some waste wood on each end of the spindle and where it's glued, they wrap it with big rubber bands or nylon strapping tape to hold the glued pieces together securely. There are lots of videos on you tube about inside out turning that show glue techniques.
