Newspaper pot maker
No I did not invent this tool, just made a copy of one I saw and took notes from when I came home from the shop…
So here the sketch.
I had some old bed legs in the pile, one of these could be useful.
Roughly to shape, no measures, just the right feel to it.
Then drilled out the center.
Now make a size that works with the pot tool.
Shape it up.
(I actually made the center too small, so I had to make a new).
Here you see the lathe being used in side position, quite cool.
Here we are – pot maker tool.
Pot from under.
Video of how to make a pot.
Hope it can inspire others to make a pot maker.
