Homemade Pottery Wheel



Well, here is the finished product. A homemade pottery wheel for under five dollars. Except for the stainless steel drain hole in the upper right hand corner of the table top the entire wheel was constructed with recycled or reclaimed found materials.

This was a really fun project, so much so that I am going to build another wheel with a slightly different design.

If you would like to see additional photos of the building process you can check out my slide show at my other blog that I write for work (my paying job), Coulee Region Art.

Wow, five bucks! That's awesome. And it looks like a quality, usable wheel.

Yeah. 5 bucks. Have been using it since I built it. The bearings were found on a scrap pile but cleaned up good. Starting to get loose now so they'll have to be replaced. Otherwise I love it.
