the stools i am making are for the farm.
we all sizes and shapes of people using the wheels
at the farm...and, they often use a lawn chair.
god awful.

so. this is not for me. and, i cannot think of
buying six stools @ $80 each.
i am making quick and easy stools for group throwing.

if soda ash is the issue...take three pounds and put
it in a plastic bag, insert in pot. ship it.
when you get there...put the soda ash in hot
water...melt it. (microwave it.)
slather to taste over pots...soda ash reduction.
easy as pie.
