Ghetto Cheese Press
 
1 Attachment(s)

As promised, here is a picture of my homemade ghetto cheese press. It's just two boards, with 4 dowels. The dowels are glued into the holes on the bottom board, and the top board just "floats".

I made a colby cheese today, so this is 50# of weight on the press. You can see it's mostly grain, but a couple of 8# kitty litters work, too.

Here is my homemade cheese press, with two baby goudas in it. Same idea as yours, it's just two cutting boards with holes drilled at the corners and a cut up dowel. I like the idea of gluing the dowels into the bottom. I didn't do that, so it disassembles easily. But something that keeps the dowels straight would be nice. I use the level to balance the weights. I haven't had it crash yet, and I've balanced 50 pounds on top a few times.
