Check out this pottery wheel I designed and built.

Please leave a like if you enjoy it. Thanks.

I'd say it's quite clever in its simplicity, but this is the first pottery wheel I see, so I'm not much of an authority to say that.

I however would recommend making it turn the other way and adding an optional pickup arm accessory and you got yourself a record player too! :P

I also like the music.

Hehe, actually considered making it spin either way for throwing as some potters throw the other way but for me, counter clockwise is perfect. If someone were to produce this wheel they could just add the bar that holds the bike hub mirrored on the other side and then flip the sprocket and chain when they want it to go the other way, but they'd also have to flip the shaft gear I think.

And thanks!

I'm not into pottery, but it looks cool. Did you 3D print the gears? I'm sure nobody sells neon pink gears :D.

Thanks dude. Yes I did, originally bought a pair of gears but in order for them to fit the other parts I had to 3d print them. So I measured and 3D modeled them and then up scaled them to make them stronger.

Seems pretty fun, with my skill though i'd probably end up making a collection of phallic shaped things.
On a somewhat related note, I signed up for a handcrafted leather shoe course, beginning in semptember, because that seemed fun as well. The catch is, I signed up thinking this was a generic 6 month course and now it turns out the damn thing can last up to 2 years.

I think i just dug my own grave.
