How To Make A Simple Fun And Efficient Potter's Wheel...

Where there's a wheel there's a way.
And this I'm sure you'll agree is a very simple way to make an efficient potters wheel.
As long as you can access a small vehicle and don't mind or have the ability to throw a pot on the horizontal.
It shouldn't be difficult. Should it?
What with necessity being
the mother of invention and all that.
Looks simple enough to me...

  1. Lordy what a way to ruin your back and legs.It looks like NAS car might pick this up.Istead of going left all the time.They stop in pitt crew area jack it up throw some mud on it.Make their own trophies. Wow maybe sell to public as beer mugs.

  2. Very resourceful! It'd be kinda nice if make it vertical though..?

    I'd also like to know how you can make and fire a kiln in a do-it-yourself way. I have a suspicion that there are lots of useful traditional skills any of us could get started on without having to invest in tons of fancy expensive equipment.

  3. Oh for goodness sakes!!..you might as well fry bacon in the nuddy - be just as silly!

  4. Just goes to show you, there's more than one way to skin that proverbial cat. When travelling in the far east I was always surprised at how a whole nation can do things completely differently from how we do things in the west. e.g. eating, cooking with chopsticks And surprise, surprise-it works. Vive la difference!
