WHEEL BATS - Handmade.

ca: DISCOS - de fusta per a tornejar

es: DISCOS - de madera para tornear

Hand-made wheel bats can be wood, clay or bisque, the ones that are easiest, cheapest and last longer are made with chipboard. The wood should be 2 cm thick and after being used must be washed on both sides and kept standing vertically; this is stop it warping. The round ones are difficult to make, so find a nice carpenter to cut them for you.

The first two photos are of bats of different sizes and the last shows how to store them.
