Sorry if I am nitpicking, but that looks like it may be pressure treated wood, some would say that PT wood is not food grade, contains arsenic I believe?

My apologies if I am incorrect...nice workmanship and happy milling.

Ah dang I didn't even think of that... Shucks. Might have to redo it... Or maybe I'll wrap it in plastic or something. Thanks.

I'm not sure if its a big deal but if it is dont wrap it in plastic a 2x4 that's not pressure treated is like 2.50 at a hardware store just replace it.

Pt lumber no longer contains arsenic. That was changed a few years ago.

So here's my corona mill box thing. I consider it ugly since everything I used was scrap around the shop and its got like 4 different kinds of wood in it. Even the screws were used

It started out as an ugly stand I threw together in an hour to hook the mill to (hence the ugly screw holes), but that was throwing grain everywhere. So I finally put the two boxes on it to stop the flying grain and to catch it, and poly'd it up. I made it so it can be disassembled by removing 4 screws (apartment brewer).

The plastic on top slides forward so I can clean or adjust the crush. It was scrap we had left from a sun room project.

I haven't used this particular set up yet, but I can't imagine it won't work. I have a cut jug to use as a hopper, thinking I could do ~5lbs at once.

Oh and the drill i use was free too!

QFT, looked up that it is now treated with mostly copper... Probably will end up replacing it though...

Honestly if its dry, then I wouldn't worry about it that much. Unless you wet your grains before you crush them

Consumer Safety Information Sheet
Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ)

Do not use treated wood under circumstances where the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed. Examples of such sites would be structures or containers for storing silage or food.

http://www.ptw-safetyinfo.ca/acq.htm

Out of curiosity I did a little research, ACQ is also used to treat pools and spas as a biocide, so how harmful / toxic can it be??? IDK, YMMV.
