Step Three:
Sand down the holes, removing any loose pieces of wood. This will allow the paint to go on smoother and keep you from getting splinters when using the press. Then make sure that your bolts fit nice and snugly. Test that the nut goes on without falling into the hole you made. If it seems to press into the hole too much you can add washers to counter-act this.
If you use wingnuts instead of the plain flat nuts, it will be easier to tighten & loosen your press.
I have <a href="http://dancewithchad.com/" rel="nofollow">adult dance classes in AZ</a> and I'm trying to open a class where we incorporate crafts with dancing. Thanks for the ideas.
That's cool! Looks so easy and beautifully painted :)
Thank you! :D
I used to have a flower press as a kid, I loved it! It had different kinds of papers in it, I guess as blotters to take out the moisture of the flowers. Great tip to use pre-cut wood shapes!
