Here are the last few pictures of “phase one” – constructing the press.
It’s really starting to take shape now.
The design is 39 inches long and 9 1/4 inches wide, has a 1 inch, front-to-back camber and a 1/2 inch concave incorporating a 3 inch flat in the centre.
Baseboard holes drilled and marked out for attaching one half of the press.
It’s gonna take a whole lotta force to bend that wood!
Can’t wait to press it.
