Making a cap (or a bottom, it depends on cooking step)

The holes in the cap are needed to drain excess of water from curd.
Making grooves on the cap and on the sides (for the same porpoise)

Making a press board

Try fit of press bord into the mold

All the parts have been cut. It is time to finish.
Boiling linseed oil

Preparing to finish


Now looking at all the parts being apart…

...i am thinking – how all this jazz will be stored?
It is easy to loose one or more parts. Traditionally this set is stored being wrapped in linen fabric. But may be I should make a box of appropriate size?

Looking good Sergeich. Is an extra weight placed on the pressboard? Hope you post a picture of the Pascha that you make when you post the finished product.

Thank you Candy! Yes, some heavy object is put on the press board, for example a stone or a jar with water. Yes, I think I will post a ready paskha, but it will be not early than April 20.

I see. Wonder how the plastic ones hold up?! Guess I’ll have to be patient until April. Thanks!

Thanks for the very interesting blog. I think a matching box would be great for storage.
