    Vacuum Veneer Press

    Hi; I'm quite new here. found this site while looking for some info to make a new table saw. But having found all y'all I thought I'd share with you a device I put together which turns out to be one of the best upgrades to my shop (especially considering it's cost vs impact).

    It is a Vacuum Veneer Press setup. all of the parts plus instructions can be gotten from: Do-It-Yourself Vacuum Veneer Press

    you have to get some stuff you local supply house/hardware/lumber store. and you put it together in any configuration seems best to you.

    I use it to make faces for harps and boxes etc. I have used vacuum presses over the years to veneer columns, tables and other works. smaller stuff it's still easier to just use cauls and clamps but for big stuff and curved stuff this can't be beat.

    and the arched faces in "champagne" aspen on this harp are the sort of things that I use it for.
