Hey thanks for the info. I did see the posts about using hot cauls to flatten veneers and how that can’t be done with a vacuum system, which is fine. I will make do without. The issue isn’t the space to store the press, it’s how much space it takes up while it’s being used. I actually have very little wall space and also very little workbench space. A drawer that can be pushed out of the way saves both.

Regarding cure temperature of glues, I hadn’t thought about that but I suppose it would be possible to use a couple of the heating pads that are for reptile tanks, or maybe the ones used for seedling trays? They raise the temperature a little but not out of control.

Honestly at this point I’m more interested in “how do you build a really wide drawer that doesn’t suck?”.
