A Wheel Table: Setting Up Your Pottery Studio
When I attended the Greg Daly workshop hosted by the Coastal Claymakers
in Coffs Harbour at the TAFE
, I was gobsmacked by the wonderful throwing area and the tables they had constructed. Such a wonderful work area!
The tables surrounding the wheels provided a really convenient workspace that fit right around the wheel.
So…remember that guy that is so handy to have around at my studio? Yep, that’s him! My wonderful husband, Ronnie!! Well, he came to the party again and created a wonderful work table for my wheel!
He used a jigsaw to cut plywood into a shape that wrapped around the wheel.
The base was made from 2x4s.
He sanded the edges and top with an electric belt sander.
The table fit perfectly around the wheel allowing for leg room
and providing lots of area for tools and pots.
The blue paint gave a sturdy, bright finish to the table.
I love it!
