Hydraulic press progress

All the parts are on hand, and construction begins in earnest this weekend on the bike-hydraulic cider press.  The pine cores and oak caps for the main crosstimbers are planed and jointed for lamination, and the side posts and post feet are rough to length.  The next step is to get a jug of wood glue and bond up the timbers.  Meanwhile I can cut the mortises and tenons on the posts and feet, and drill some of the holes.  Should have something to look at by the end of Sunday…
