Flower press

The boys and I have made their sister a flower press for christmas from a few bits of plywood and some bolts hanging around that I salvaged from a cot. I’m not sure if she’ll be able to turn the screws tightly enough but hopefully she’ll like it.

The boys help with the ‘research’, looking up designs on the web, measuring out the ply, sanding down the rough edges and finally getting to wield my trusty drill. After that their enthusiasm waned so I impatiently finished it off with a painted mdf flower and a coat of varnish. I’m hoping that they’ll choose and press a couple of flowers to make into a christmas card for her to go with the press.
