Wife wanted to make black raspberry jelly from our over abundance of berries this year and we needed a press to make life easier. To the Internet for some pics and this is what I came up with. No real plans just went for it. Made of ash with a walnut turning wheel. Made on batch so far and everything seems to work real well.

Looks good and WORKS well!

What more does anyone expect!

Make some syrup for pancakes/crepes too. Even good on toast.
Or as an ice-cream topping.

You did a great job on this press. It’s nicely done and looks like it should work very well.

Looks good, but looks can be deceiving – I think I need to taste that jam. :)

Great job, I hope it gets lots of use this year and for years to come.

Thanks for posting.
