  1. Veneer Press

    I want to continue experimenting with veneer so I looked around Lumberjocks and found a couple small veneer presses. This is my simple version. Table to 1/2" MDF with some wood strips to help stiffen it a little more. The table is about 13" by 18". The side members were dadoed to accept the...
  2. Veneer Press

    I needed a second veneer press so I threw this one together. Added some Louis cubes for inspiration. Solid mahogany with various veneers.
  3. Toy Chest with Veneer Panel Inserts

    Walnut Toy Chest with arched rails, molding and veneer panel inserts. We first built a shelf board mock-up to determine rail arcs and veneer panel sizes. We used our neighbors full size CNC router to produce MDF templates for the various arcs. The MDF templates were used to create fixtures...
  4. £19 veneer press

    I've been wanting to get some more small but intricate things made, but i have no ability to veneer other than sticking two boards across and clamping. Which has mixed results. Vacuum presses start at a few hundred, and book makers nipping presses arn't much less. This whole thing cost me...
  5. Pipe clamp veneer press

    Why complicate things when you don't have to? Here's what I think is a simple solution for an adjustable height, adjustable width, veneer or lamination press using pipe clamps. It is as easy to set up as it is flexible. If your horizontal bar is long enough and strong enough you can bridge...
  6. Knock Down Bottle Jack Veneer Press

    I want to incorporate marquetry into more of my projects and also start working with veneers. The few times I have done veneer work I have used contact cement primarily because I did not have an easy way of gluing up the veneer panels to the substrate. I'm not ready to commit to buying (or...
  7. newTim's Wholly Adequate Crosscut Sled

    This is the second sled I've built. The first sled, built for a unisaw, was very accurate, but also very heavy. It had a 3/4" plywood bottom and solid maple fences. It also had maple runners which seemed to expand and contract with the weather. To make this sled a little lighter I used 1/2"...
  8. Veneer Press - Modular Modifications

    For some time now I have been meaning to replace my hastily built veneer press in my Green Valley shop. The main reason it didn't get done sooner is that it still worked fine thanks to some threaded rods I installed at the get go. Fast forward to the present, and I need a somewhat larger press...
  9. AppleWood TreePod

    My first veneer attempt. Christmas Approaching, Sister wanted an iPod. So I got her one… out of wood. She was ecstatic for a split second. Then gave her the real iPod. She showed her friends, and they kept pressing buttons asking, "Have you charged it yet?" I only had a few days before...
  10. Joewoodworker veneer press

    Prior to starting a course in Marquetry and Veneering at RedRocks CC in Colorado, I took the time to build a JoeWoodworker designed veneer press. I found it worth the trouble, because once you start veneering, you never stop. I found that I can pull in the range of 20-21" so I'm getting...
  11. Veneer / Marquetry Press with Heated Cauls

    I am the last person I would ever have expected to be building a mechanical press like this. I have been a strong proponent and user of vacuum bags of all sizes and shapes for 25 years. However since I've become interested in marquetry and in traditional methods and materials, things have...

    How can someone make a bench sander more precise if its table is not dead flat?

    Homemade Veneer Press I made this simple veneer press in preparation for a project. The veneer press is similar to a couple I saw posted here on L.J. I don't have any spare room left in the garage so I wanted a veneer press that could be easily disassembled and stored away and would not...

    Simple Precision Arc Inlay Jig I had the need this afternoon for a way to cut a curved groove for a veneer inlay. It needed to be absolutely accurate and easy enough that even I couldn't screw it up. A half hour later I had this little jig. I thought someone else may find it useful. The first...

    Chronology of a woodworker Grand title. Every time I glue up a multi-layer board for EZ Mitre or veneer a pattern I use my veneer press. Every time I write what I am doing, date and time. I looked at it today, just before I used it, and started to read some of the entries. They go back to the...
  17. Site Help and Suggestions
    Specifically for Martin- Links I know this might break a good many things, but it makes sense (in my mind): http://lumberjocks.com/topics/27378#reply-386164 (where the 386164 is a reference to the comment id) have it be '/topics/27378#reply-44', where the 44 is relative to the topic...
