      Work bench surface:  Hi Neil!  You've written on other posts that your excellent work bench surface is 3/4" MDF with 5-6 coats of Linseed Oil.  I'd like to copy your method, and am currently planning a to build a workbench.  Quick question, does the MDF need to be on top of a sheet of plywood so that it won't sag or warp, or is that not necessary?  My workbench will be 3' x 8' with 4x4" legs and  2x4" braces.   Thank you! ---Nan

      I am building up a new body of work, in the experimental stages!  I have been lurking here for many years, but only just set up a profile. Thank you all for the amazing content and hope to contribute more in the future.

      I fire my pots with the lid on, but sometimes the lid adheres to the gallery. How can I avoid that?

      So, I am a new high school art teacher who is in charge of the school's ceramics classes. When I was going through my classroom supplies, I learned that we have cone 6 clay, but all of our glaze is cone 06-04... SOS. What is the best way to use the supplies I have, when ordering new supplies at this time is not an option? I figured I could only fire the clay to cone 04, but then the work won't be as strong. Could I fire the clay to cone 6 as a "bisque" then follow it with a cone 04 glaze fire? Thank you in advance for any help offered!!!
