Now lets attach the 1" strip to the 5" rail. We attached these two pieces with gorilla glue and 1 1/4" screws. Gorilla glue recommends moistening one of the surfaces before applying the glue. We found that stale beer works perfect for this:


So moisten, put down a line of glue, and mount the 1" ring to the 5" ring. Make sure the top side of the 1" rail you cut is the side pressing against the 5" rail. Attach some clamps and then go have a beer. 

When your beer is empty drill about 10 pilot holes all around the 1 inch rail. Don't go too deep, no more then 1 1/4" or you might punch through the top. Then drive your 1 1/4" screws into these holes.
