W3A MKM Wood Rib – Small bowl rib
MKM Wood Rib W3A works well for small bowl interiors and vertical wall compression. The dimensions are 8 x 3.2 cm (3.1 x 1.3 inches). This rib comes in a larger size W3B.
Wood Ribs are 1 cm thick pieces of European beech carefully shaped, carved to a fine edge, and finished with Tung oil for extra durability. Wood Ribs are designed for maximum functionality when throwing. The shapes of the ribs vary according to the function and size of the clay objects. Large plate ribs for large plates, tiny bowl ribs for very small pots, and straight cylinder ribs for tall cylinders. Rigid ribs are the best for achieving form. The fine edge of the rib reduces torque on the pot. If the rib becomes slightly worn and the grain becomes raised lightly sand the edge of the rib to bring back its high performing edge.
