I just got my mom's old kickwheel from out of the barn.  It's in great condition considering its age and storage.  The problem is It has just the wooden wheel head and no special piece of cut plywood mounted on top like it used to, which a bat would be attachted to.  She's not going to let me throw pots directly off the wheel head since she says it will damage the wood.  So I was wanting to seal somehow.  I'd need to totally waterproof the top and sides the seal would have to stand up to pressure and the moisture of the clay, as well as minor abrasions from tools and what not.

So, I was wondering... would mod podge be a good option to seal this wood?

please post tips as well as alternative options if you don't think it would work, however I don't want to do anything too complicated and especially want to not have to take the short wood cyndrilical wheel head off of the kickwheel.

Thanks.

No, Mod Podge is just like Elmer's glue in that water will dissolve it.  You should use something like a shellac or acrylic sealant.  Or possibly Thompson's Water Seal.  Heck, that stuff's made for just such a purpose.

However, it'd be easy as pie to get a new piece of plywood cut to size; most hardware stores will do it for a small fee.
