I thought you might be interested to watch this video (just added English subtitles) showing the process of making organic cold-pressed oil with the use of wooden press-barrels:

Please share with friends and feel free to order wooden press-barrel directly from the Russian craft master.

To make oils you need to apply high pressure, upto 20-25 tons and in this case you will need a really strong press made of metal.

But if you make juices, you will apply pressure upto 5 tons and in this case you can use a press made of wood which is much cheaper. You can even make it yourself.
