Anyhow, having assorted pieces of Oak and Oak plywood around, I had enough to make what you see, needing to only buy the Oak dowel for the axle and the SS hardware. A few coats of polyureathane and it was ready for business with less than $15 invested.
This fall I used it to crush a few hundred pounds of grapes and it worked just fine. Every so often you have to push some down the sloping bottom, but not a big problem compared to crushing by hand.
I improvised a bit from the plans, a sliding axle holder to adjust for different size grapes, and the beads on the drum were made from scraps of oak instead of small dowels and then screwed on. Otherwise, close in size and construction to the article I found.
