DIY: How to Make your Own Wheel Table

Looking to create a convenient work table to go around your potters wheel? Jeff created one that is in his studio and loves working on it! The top of the table is made of MDF Wood so it is a great work surface when using clay.

He is also able to cover up his wheel with a wooden MDF insert incase he needs more room to work and doesn't need to access his wheel.
