This is an old style Pottery Wheel made from old recycled timbers. The pedal wheel is an old solid wagon wheel and was supplied by the client. I nearly cried as it was beautiful old red Narra and I could see lots of uses for it. But as we know customer is always right. It is made with wedged tenons and dovetails. I put 2 stainless steel bolts on the seat cross member as this is the major stress area. It has two drawers for storing tools. These can be taken out and put on work area for easy access. It is a very heavy piece and needs four men to lift it. The finish to the piece is oil and wax. The basin is finished in 4 coats of epoxy resins for heavy duty wear and tear and water proofing. There was no trying to use all the same timber colors as this is a working piece and that would have increased the price. Plus the timber for the seat and the wheel were supplied by client
I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.
