I made this wood press for glue ups of rings for segmented bowls. It can be used for any applications to press glue ups until the glue sets up. Saw this on the internet and it works real good. It was my first time runnig threads through wood I was surprized how well the threads worked.

Nice job Bill. Hey I don’t see no dust. Where you do your werk?

I have turned only one segmented bowl. I don’t do that much (hardly any) segmented bowls but if I did I would need one of these. Going to favorite it for future access.

What a great way to disguise the cider press. The heck with the saw dust, where is the cider fermenting?
