A friend and I tried to build a pottery kick wheel ourselves, but the concrete flywheel we poured cracked immediately, rendering the wheel a bit wobbly. Fortunately I later discovered these two kits, which include everything you need to make a solid kick wheel, including the wheel head, ball bearings, and all the pre-cut wood. And if you’re a better woodworker than me, you can just buy the metal kit and build the wood frame yourself. I use it all the time to make pottery, which is what it’s all about!

  1. That’s my wheel! Put it together in 1999, and it’s still going strong. Made a SketchUp model of it here:

    …and some of the pots I’ve made with it here:
