it shouldn't be too tough. i'm actually thinking about not doing the spindle type legs but doing one solid leg on each end for a little more stability and less likelyhood of breakage. The plans call for 1.75" thick lumber for the seat and a 5"x5" chunk for the clamp. Good thing my brother is good friends with a guy who owns a sawmill!!! Getting this dimension lumber in red oak shouldn't be a problem. Jordan, if you, or anybody else for that matter, wants to build and need a source for the lumber, just let me know.
Potters wheel huh?? My brother used to be a potter by trade, he did it at Silver Dollar City for 8 years and about 5 or 6 on his own. Then he worked for a company as a sand sculptor, then he became a toy sculptor, which he still does, but now he also builds custom guitars. Hence the connection with the sawmill. Pottery is a lot of fun though.
Sorry, it's late for me and I've rambled long enough.
