Pretty easy project. The plan was published in Woodworkers Journal “Woodworking Secrets: Essential methods and projects for fine tuning your shop skills”. I got the plans when they were offered as a free download from Woodworkers Journal Ezine. The two handle pieces are from some left over Brazilian Cherry and the body is from a 48” piece of 3/4” Red Oak. All I had to buy was the hardware (bolts, acorn nuts and All-Thread) and a stick of 1 1/4” oak dowel. Works real good and a lot sturdier than most of the commercially offered can crushers.
This is where I was talking about the difficulty of boring a 3/8” hole down the center of the dowel in the forum
Problem drilling hole in dowel. Thanks for all the replies and assistance.
