BUILD A POTTERY WHEEL

One of the things on my rode list is making a hiding place for ladybugs. I saw a ceramic pot on the internet with holes in it. So i wondered could i make one myself out of clay. For this i need a potterswheel, and a thought that maybe a steppermotor could be used for this. Because then there is no need for a driveline so the construction can be rather simple. I had a stepper motor laying around to experiment with and i came to the conclusion that it must be doable.
