How To Make A Pottery Banding Wheel – Cheap – Excellent!

How To Make A Pottery Banding Wheel – Cheap – Excellent!

One of the critical tools when spraying glazes onto your pots is a really good turntable – one that spins easily and keeps spinning! These can be expensive and hard to find.

My wonderful husband, Ronnie, is the best potter’s friend! We looked at the video (linked below)  on making a turntable from a bicycle wheel and he put one together for me!

However, he bought the bicycle hub for about $10.00 as we didn’t have a used bike sitting around!

It is awesome and spins like a top! The “table” part is also large enough to accommodate larger platters easily. I highly recommend making one of these!

    $10.00 is so much cheaper than buying one. They’re ridiculously expensive but so necessary. I cheaped out and bought the shorter one, wishing now that I had bought one on a higher pedestal! Love this idea, though and I have a handy husband who just might be interested in making me one! Thanks Marian!
