  1. I have a northstar studio slab roller which i bought 8 years ago and have been very pleased with. Whatever you buy I strongly recommend you go with the two roller model which evenly compresses the clay. Top roller only models require you to flip the slab so it gets rolled on each side--otherwise you have stretched the top clay particles more than the bottom ones and you can be assured of warpage--the curse of slab construction.
  2. Clean Edges On Slab Work

    When your piece is leather hard use a "sureform" rasp to shave the edges straight, curved or whatever. Then smooth with damp sponge. I use the small curved sureform.
