My $19.78 + $2.49 two ton Juice Press!
I previously said this press cost $19.78, but while taking pictures I realized I also purchased a plastic cutting board for $2.49.
I didn't count the wood in the price as I already had this laying around.
Ok, lets get some pics...
First I must say, I didn't do any measuring, I didn't do any sanding or finishing work, I just cut the wood and threw this thing together in about 30 minutes. So keep that in mind!
Left to Right in the front: A plastic cutting board to put on top of the pressing cloth, maple plywood to put on top of the cutting board, a 2x4 to put on top of the maple plywood, a little block of wood to put on top of the jack.
Second Row: A really old baking pan, and a two ton jack I purchased at walmart for 14 bucks and some change.
Third Row: The frame. Nothing but 2x4's and some bolts I got at TSC (They gots the stuff I need out here!) the bolts cost four bucks and change.
A side view of the frame... Nothing but 2x4's sandwiched together.
The old baking pan I drilled a hole in to let the juice drain out.
My Kitchenaid with Grinder. It's a Professional 600 series, so there's much more power than the classic Kitchenaid. This goop is celery, apple, carrots, lemon, and ginger.
