This rib is great for working on a medium to large size bowl . It has a broad curve that ends in a tight curve and a flat edge that will allow you a variety of repeatable shapes.

I'm a woodworker and a potter, too. It seemed like I needed something just a little different than I could get from the catalogs, so I started making my own pottery tools. There are no nicks or flat spots in the curves of my ribs.

Get your hands on one of these fine wooden pottery ribs and feel the possibilities. It will inspire you. Bond with it. And send me photos of your work!

This rib measures 5 1/4" long by 2 3/4" wide. It is a meaty 3/8" thick and the grip hole is almost an 1" across. This rib is made from a very attractive piece of Cocobolo.

I would be happy to make a custom shaped rib for you if there is a design that you have in mind we can talk about it.

In the finishing process I have hand rubbed this rib with a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil. The care and maintenance of your tools is important to their giving you complete satisfaction. They should not be left in your water pail or in the slurry bucket. At the end of a day of use these tools should be wiped down with a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.
