« Part 1: basic parts Part 2 of Shop-made veneer/nipping press series Part 3: Finishing off »

Time for the joinery

Tennons done on the table saw

Mortices done with a drill and a chisel

(yes i am working in the kitchen. It’s winter here and my workshop has no heating)

Parts ready for assembly, Top and bottom all ready part assembled.

Test run.

All glued up. In this case epoxy, strength is needed.

Holes have been drilled to take screws so no need for clamps. These’ll be pluged when it dried.
The up and down bit is too tight and will need a mm taken off so that it can run easily, for now its helping keep everything in place while it dries.

Looks like it will be a fine press.
Can’t wait to see more projects like this one and this one.
Maybe a chevalet next…..??
