I had a thought. What about using an old stainless steel sink (with a relatively flat bottom) for the press pan? Cider could drain out the drain and wouldn't have to worry about coating the wood or having it absorb cider. Would probably have to support bottom due to the force of press.

This fall I plan on making one of these. I was thinking about adding a threaded end to it, so you could cap the end and fill it with bleach water to clean sterilize. Or could you just stick a rubber stopper in the end and fill it with water?
Assuming I could clean and sterilize it, I was also going to use it to grind table scraps for compost.
I'll have to find pics to post, but I took a plastic wash basin and poked a hole in the bottom as the base for my press. It worked real well this past fall.
