My iPod dock, awesome sound either with music or books. My glazing area is in another room so those days are music days cranked up while I like books when I throw, trim & do attaching.

Good list. I have several, 1 for pricing, 1 for sizing & a similar one like yours.
A hint save them on a stick or disc or separate drive. Our computer just crashed with no recovery I lost the most recent invoices but have paper copies.

I use a selection of three mugs I made for demos when I taught. My husband also uses demo mugs. I guess they are the right size & just fit our hands the way we like. I have trouble holding a skinny handle so make them wider than normal.

In Topic: What Surface Do You Wedge On?

My wedging board is a removeable piece of plywood with canvas stretched on it & is over 20 years old no rips. I also have a board with plaster board attached so they can be switched. My husband built the wedging table with a backboard & put L shaped hardware that keeps the board in place & is easy to switch.

Hi, I have found it best after trimming to dry pot lids on their pots to prevent warping on both rims, likewise they should be fired together always to keep them true. You need to wax both rim & pot connection & wash away any glaze residue in the glaze fire. A light tap with a wooden dowel easily separates hard to lift lids.
