I'm heading off to camp in the woods of northern Maine with family and friends. Every time I do this, I usually come back with a couple of logs, or large pieces of decomposing bark. I think that collection is near complete, so this time I'm to going to concentrate on smaller, more portable specimens of the native flora. And in that spirit, I just put together a couple of small field presses for me and my pals.
I've done a few in-house stress tests, and the hot-melt glue seems to be holding up. These were wicked easy and took about a half hour to make. And yes, in the background that's a fine specimen from the over-sized bark collection, acquired last summer.
