A tortilla, flat-bread, Naan bread or any dough that needs to be thin and flat can be pressed quickly with this simple Tortilla Press. My design is not new and is readily available from other Instructables. Mine is "special" because it was an EPIC FAIL on the first time use!
Step 1: Tools & Parts/ Materials
Jig or Saber Saw
Sandpaper- 80,150, 240 grit
Files, metal and wood
Lag Bolt ( I didn't have one the right length so I cut down a longer one based on the width of my hinge point of the handle.)
Drill with 1/2 inch bit
2 Wood plank ( at least 9 inches wide and 12 inches long.)
2 Hinges 2 inch square (ensure each side of the hinge is at least as wide as the wood is thick.)
1 Wood Dowel approximately 1 inch diameter or greater by 12 inches long.
Wood Glue (Gorilla, Titebond, & Elmer's all make good ones, just make sure it is Wood Glue.)
Wood Oil (optional, there are various opinions on oiling wood for food prep surfaces but ensure that it is a food safe oil.)
