Concrete Wedging Table - Pottery Studio Kneading Table - Pottery Studio Tip

Last year we poured a big concrete patio.  John built a slick smooth form and we poured a concrete wedging block.   

I finally retired the old plaster block.  It was very worn, plus it wouldn't let go of the red clay contamination.

Cinder blocks are a safe sturdy foundation for the heavy concrete block.  I could totally do the smack down and this thing wouldn't move at all.

The surface is just smooth concrete.  No polishing required.  It's very similar to wedging on plaster.  It wicks moisture big time, so I usually wipe the surface with a damp sponge prior to wedging my clay.   

This new concrete wedging block Rocks!  I love it.  Should have gone with concrete years ago.

Thanks to my Sweetheart for making it.
