Not much mention is made of the ends of the cylinder (does the grid just end, or is it sloped, rounded, attached to the end wall of the chamber, etc?)

I can't speak for Miley's effort, but the Farnsworth unit has the ends of the inner cylindrical grid as halfspheres. the chamber or outer wall had flat ends.
