Swamp Yankee Flower or Book Press

Swamp Yankee Flower/Book Press

Swamp Yankee Flower/Book Press

Handcrafted From Maple With Handmade Threaded Dowel Uprights

I designed and built this handcrafted woodworking piece to be either a Flower Press or a Book Press – it works for both! Crafted from maple throughout, including the handmade threaded dowel uprights and handmade tapped turning handles.

Eye-Catching Contrasting Colors with Three Hand Rubbed Coats of Danish Oil

The handmade threaded dowel uprights are stained dark for an eye-catching contrast to the lighter colored maple surfaces. The lighter colored maple surfaces are hand rubbed with three coats of Danish Oil, giving this handcrafted wooden tool a rich warm glow with a tough water-resistant finish.

Useful Wooden Tool and Decorative Too!

In addition to being a useful wooden tool, as a decorative Book Press you can also display a few of your favorite books, too!

Swamp Yankee Canted Wall Box Antique Reproduction

This large antique reproduction Canted Wall Box looks and feels like one you’d find in a New England Swamp Yankee’s farmhouse.

It looks great as-is, displayed in a favorite place on a wall in your house, but really comes to life when it lovingly displays your favorite knicknacks, ornamental objects or trinkets.
