My New Lying Press #1 by Dale Turner

I’m breaking in my new lying press #1 that Dale Turner made for me. He made me two of these that are as identical as hand made items can be. This is the most beautiful lying press wood, flame cherry, that I have seen.  This press work perfectly as well.   Thanks so much for making these for me, Dale.  I will be showing you two more presses that he made for me that came via UPS this week.  Beware of the UPS Man!  He broke my lying press on a stand even before it arrived.  I must now find a skilled local woodworker to repair it.  Yes, it was packed well, but UPS caved the box in.

In the photos below, I am stitching an end band on to the 1640 Bay Psalm book that I was commissioned to make by Gene Albert. Learn more about this Psalm Book on my web page at the following link: Click Here
