DIY Slab Roller

I found the original plans through Pinterest and Youtube. You can click on either link to see 2 different videos. At the end of the Youtube video, the creator posted his email so you can request these plans. I have included the plans I received from Dale below with a few modifications on the Cable Winding.

I decided to make a table top version since I’m primarily a wheel throwing kind of gal, but I do enjoy handbuilding. I didn’t fill my pipes with cement, although I might do that later down the line and add handles. Haven’t decided yet. I also didn’t put in the spacers for the wire because I couldn’t find something to work with the ABS pipe. I suppose if you get the white PVC, you will have better luck finding something like in the videos. My bad for getting the ABS, but they were the right size and I didn’t want to buy a 10′ PVC pipe to use only 4′. I’ll include the break down of costs and the measurements for the one I made below. I didn’t include tax or the price of screws since I just used what screws I had handy. Also, I got my wood from a local lumber place, so the prices might be a little higher than Home Depot. Now I kind of wish I didn’t add it all up because it was more than I thought. Oh well, still worth it!

Breakdown of Costs:
1″ x 4″ x 72″ (6ft) Poplar $11.34
1″ x 6″ x 48″ (4ft) Poplar $9.72
1″ x 2″ x 108″ (9ft) Poplar $7.62
1/8″ x 2′ x 4′ Masonite $3.65
½” x 2′ x 4′ Plywood $11.12
(1) Turnbuckle 7/32″ x 4 ¾” $2.99
(2) Fixed Pulley 1 ¼” $8.74
(2) Ferrule and Stop Set $3.96
(4) Aluminum Trim Channel $18.96
(4) 1 ¼” Single Pulley (Grainger) $17.84
1/8″ x 30′ Uncoated Wire Rope $8.40
(2) 2″ x 2′ ABS pipe $6.72
(4) 2″ ABS Cap Hub $19.48
¼” x 2′ x 4′ Masonite $3.72
Total: $134.26
