We looked at the metal press but they are to small and we want to be able to make larger tortillas. Then I remembered a wooden press a friend of mine had when I lived in AZ. It was an old and crudely made thing, but did a great job at making tortillas. We looked in all the kitchen stores around our area, but to no avail, and finally Tina says to me, why don't you just use some of the small scape pieces of wood you have and make one? So yesterday I sketched a design after looking on the net for some ideas and then me and my grandson looked through my wood stash and found some pieces of 8/4 maple for the base, some 5/4 cherry for the top, and for the lever and arm I will use some 8/4 cherry. I plan on dovetailing the upright in to the base and cutting a curve on the bottom of the handle to give it more leverage.
