Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #1: Making The vacuum bag

12-06-2014 06:00 PM by Matt Nudi | 2 comments »

So the first part of this is the fact that I needed a vacuum press to really get the results that I wanted. I did a lot of reading on the joewoodworker site and decided on the excel1 continuous run system. It came in the mail yesterday and get everything set up and sealed off. The next step for me is working on making the vacuum bag. I bought 30mil vinyl from the veneer suppliers website. I have the glue for the vinyl and the roller and the valve stem now I just need to get things asse...

Dave's Workshop #4: Drills-Keeping Things More at Hand

10-30-2014 09:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Above: A while ago I built this stand for my drill press. It’s got a deep drawer and two shelves behind double doors. It got really tiring having to open the doors, bend over, and reach in to grab either my electric (corded drill,) or my handy hand drill. So today I put a thought into action. I looked up drill holders and found this really basic design to keep things at hand. Above: A simple chunk of 2×4 with two holes drilled into it and a little cutting and I got thi...

Wood Art #8: Pictorial Webster's: Inspiration to Completion

04-04-2010 03:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

While not particularly woodworking, he uses wood in many of his jigs and clamps and presses. Too, he calls his operation “Quercus Press,” and Quercus, as we all know is the genus of the oak trees. It looks like the covers are glued over white oak boards as well. Moreover, though, this video is simply a maker’s dream. From the old linotype machine whirring and clanking away to line up type as he presses keys, to the vaults of old engravings he gained access to, to the many cl...

vacum press

10-17-2007 09:12 AM by Davesfunwoodworking | 8 comments »

I was wondering if any one has any plans on a home made vacum press. I also am wondering if a vacum pump for air conditioning would work? Can any one help me. Can any one tell me if they all work the same? I would like to build one but Iam not sure how. Any help would be great. Thanks Dave.

If you are considering a similar upgrade, or you are just looking for some inspiration to tackle a project that you’ve been putting off, you might want to take a look at the post about it on my blog. Thanks for reading and let me know what you think!

The Never Ending Bedroom Furniture Project #4: The Wood Butchering Begins

10-07-2007 02:49 PM by Muzhik | 0 comments »

With all of that koa and etimoe veneer in my shop, I was eager to get started. There was one problem. I built my vacuum press from Joe Woodworker’s Directions while I was still living in the states. I had hoped I would be able to run it on a transformer. The only problem with that is that the electricity here isn’t only different in voltage, but in frequency as well (cycles per second or Hertz (Hz) is the second number in 110/60). I spoke with Joe to ask him if I would have any luck runn...
