« Part 4: Video Episode 2 Part 5 of Beginner's Guide - The Vacuum Press & Veneering series Part 6: Video Episode 4 »

This episode completes the tape-up process for my first panel. More to come – I am trying to keep the clips short for easy uploading. Just a quick teaser . . . the panel turned out great.

If I can do this anyone can!

Thanks to Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions and JoeWoodworker.com

Awesome! Thanks for this tutorial. Now I know who to call when the sun is still shining at 3am and I can’t sleep and have to fiddle in the shop. Thanks for your efforts in producing, directing, starring in and editing this piece. The Lumberjocks Video Podcast Movement!

Hey David…............all 3 – excellent man!!!!!! Can’t wait to see how you use the press on creating your panels. Whole new building process to a whole new woodworking world.

Your on going dialog that lead to …...”if I can do anybody can do”...was funny. I like how you presented everything visually…...... very thorough!!!!

Have a couple questions on the vacuum: Not sure I understand, did you purchase the entire system as a kit or did you select what you wanted; then purchased each part to your system seperately??? ..............also You mentioned continuous run, does that mean the unit reach’s a pressure and turns off, then on when pressure declines or does the unit run all the time?

Last question….......Did you try that fabric cutter you mentioned?????

Tom -

The LumberJocks Podcast Movement continues . . . ! Thanks!

Neil -

Thanks for the kind comments! Also, thank you so much for the inspiration. This is going to be a lot of fun. My head is reeling with the possibilities!

Answers to questions:

I purchased individual items. The pump is heavy duty rated for continuous running during the vacuum press process. It does not cycle on & off during the process. I ran the pump for 2 1/2 hours which was the published set time for the glue.

I got going with the veneer saw and did not have a chance to use the fabric cutter. Will try that next time!

Hi Mike,

I am still following this series. So far this seems to be fairly straight forward and you are taking a lot of the mystery out of the process.
