Step 7: Putting the press together
As you can hopefully see in the picture, there are two main upright timbers on each end. Then there are timbers going across the top and bottom, tying them together and basically making two big rectangles. These horizontal timbers act as braces to keep the whole press sturdy.
I also have side timbers tying the rectangles together and making the press. The trough sits in between, resting on the bottom timbers.
I used regular, zinc-plated bolts to fasten everything together.
