A friend of my husband texted recently that he was looking for a pottery wheel for his wife. He wondered if I had any good sources or advice.

Seriously, that’s not an easy question to answer without a lot more information. Like most tools, there’s a huge variation in cost, quality and capability. Since we were already out and about, we stopped at his shop (he’s a cabinetmaker) to learn more.
