10. Medicinal Purposes Cider Press
I love tutorials like this one. They don’t just show you how to build something, but they tell you a story in the process.
Plus, I got a good laugh out of the story as well because I could see myself having the same difficulty saying no to an astronomical amount of apples.
But he then tells you how to build a very functional apple press that will apparently bust through a large quantity of apples. If you have a huge apple harvest each year, then you might want to check this one out.
11. The Apple Grinder
This grinder is a little smaller than most of the cider presses we’ve seen so far. I thought some of you may not have room for something as big as a press.
So instead, you might prefer a backup option like this grinder.
Either way, if you need a grinder, here is a thorough tutorial to help you build one that appears to do a great job.
12. The 1979 Cider Press
When tracking this cider press down, I got a flashback that took me way back. This cider press was originally published in a magazine in 1979.
And yes, it was kind of funny strumming through the pages of this old magazine (though I looked through it digitally of course.)
However, the details of this press are great and exactly what most people could use when looking to build a quality apple press themselves.
13. The Basic Cider Press Set-Up
This cider press is another one that looks pretty intriguing, but the author says that it is simple and cheap to build.

So if you need a cider press on a budget, then you should definitely consider checking these plans out.

16. Zen of Nature Cider Press
These plans are pretty straightforward. You’ll have to have some carpentry experience so you will know how to decipher the plans.
But if you can do that (or know someone that can help you), then you should be able to take on this build.

17. The Easy DIY Cider Press
The title should automatically catch your attention if you are new to building projects. They proclaim this to be both an easy and DIY project. When they put those two words together, my ears pop up.
See, my husband is a carpentry whiz. It is probably because he worked in construction for 14 years.
But for someone like me, who has very limited carpentry experience, I appreciate those that put plans together that make tasks like this seem a little less intimidating.
