Pier table for my son’s apartment to match a coffee table and end tables. European white oak 1/8” veneer over two layers of 3/4” MDF. All laminations done in a vacuum press

Nice. Wish I had a vacuum press

-- I actually have two thumbs. Both prehensile and opposing.

Dowel joints? I like the lines and the veneer, just leary of MDF as I’ve had furniture break on me. I can’t tell how high that is, would just be worried someone might sit on it or stand on it to get something high up and have a disaster. Do you cut the veneer yourself? I’ve tried on my bandsaw but unsuccessfully.

Loose tenons with epoxy glue not dowels. The MDF is double layers of 3/4”. This piece is about 30” high. The veneer is 1/8” from Certainly Wood. This European White Oak at that thickness is quite hard to cut but across and with the grain.

1thumb: This would have been very difficult without a vacuum press. The pieces were quite heavy. I love my vacuum press. All the pieces in this series were make using it.

swirt: thanks for the kink words.
