This was a wedding present for my daughter and her husband. The framework and resulting shape is made from an old cast wood lathe I had.The sides are walnut with mesquite plugs and the top is made from 2 live edge book matched mesquite slabs. The seat lifts up to access the motor and storage area. When not in used as a potters wheel you can take the splash guard off, and put a clock face (in progress) on the spindle. It takes up a lot less space that way and looks like a mini grandfather clock. thanks for browsing… Rick
