I build this because I like making my own tortillas and all I could find around here was press that made 5” tortillas. all of the wood and hinges are scrapes I had from other jobs the hinge pin is just that an old hinge pin from a door hinge I just peened it over. I designed this project a while ago you can read about how I designed it on my blog. I dovetailed the upright to give it more support and had cross pieces to help stabilize the wood for the press. they are glued in the center so everything can expand as it will without damage. I can wait to start making my own tortillas.
