My wife wanted a present for our daughter and family, they like to cook, so I decided to make this Tortilla press using only scraps. Woods are poplar, cherry,walnut and purpleheart.the finish is a food safe walnut oil. Didn't dimish the scrap pile much but was fun to make and I hope to get some tasty tortillas made with this present

Design or Plan used: My own design
