DIY Shoji Wheel

It's purely coincidental that I discover this video completely randomly today. It has nothing to do with my visit to Bandana Pottery last week or does it? Is Google or the NSA monitoring the blog?

My recommendations :

  • Raise your axle so your not so bent over like Mr. Bergman.
  • Use a safer turning stick like maybe wood! The tire iron is ironic, but a little hazardous (if you accidentally lose your grip on it and it's coming at you or any onlookers!)

Enjoy! (but don't hurt yourself)

Oh, and here's a nice video of the one and only, Shoji Hamada throwing on a similar wheel.
