Well, this is the last of this set of video episodes completing my first run at a veneering project. The panel turned out great and I am looking forward to exploring other wood species. This was a lot of fun. Trust me, if I can do this right out of the gates, anyone can! Thanks to Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions and JoeWoodworker.com Finally the vacuum press is loaded!

I was thinking whether or not to make this a continuation of the veneering bog, however many items here have more to do with vacuum systems, than veneering. Hence a new Blog! Photo one is a Demilune Hall Table top jig. Photo two is a 30 inch long tee square which we use for biscuiting and routing duties. We make marks on the blue tape, were the biscuits go. When were done we replace the tape. Photo three is an 8” square that we use to biscuit cabinet sides on. P...
Vacuum splitter and a ‘dust can’this one is for Dan / Maveric. Yes the dust goes to Dan this blog is dedicated to him and his recovery… Why? Because Dan just had a terrible time and this might have some roots in the dust from the shop! I personally sometimes sneeze and cough when I am done with sanding and I have had my thoughts on this for a while.My Vacuum is a shop vacuum, but just a standard one from Atlas copco and I used simple 50 mm 2 inch plumbing to distribute it s...
The thermoplastic handle scales on my folk’s Wüstof knife broke, and I thought I’d replace it with some wood scales. I had some offcuts of claro walnut that were the right size, but I wanted to make sure that the new walnut scales would hold up to kitchen use. I did a little research in some knife-making web sites and forums and learned a bit about wood stabilization, where you impregnate wood with some material (epoxy, resin, etc.) to harden it and make it more durable. Some h...
What a surprise I had when I started preparing for this interview and I found that the company is located in Toronto, Canada – not too far away from me! Yippee!

I thought I would include a few more photos, showing the construction details. I’m not sure why I always end up with the photos in reverse order, but maybe you should start from the bottom! Completed top, waiting for the edge shaping and butterflies. My stepson, Evan, inspecting our work. Lee and Evan installing 1/8" thick, Wenge edge banding. The underside, fitted and stained. The holes allow attaching the top to the frame. Evan measuring for the stainless inserts...
VACUUM PRESS BAG STORAGE CONTAINERI recently was inspired to start veneering using the vacuum press by Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions. If you haven’t had a chance to check out his website and video blog, it is really worthwhile to pay a visit sometime. He is currently finishing a contemporary veneered ash lingerie chest. I have been fascinated by this series. He has really focused on design elements and shop efficiency. His two episodes ( Episode 6 - Part 1 and Episode 6 - Part ...
I have an old canister household vacuum that refuses to die, so I use it with allot of my hand held power tools, specifically my ROS, biscuit joiner, pocket hole jig, and a small belt sander. In the past to connect my tool of choice to the vacuum I would always jimmy rig something up with duct tape or just hold the hose on the dust collection fitting..not good. I went to Home Depot one day to look around in the plumbing section for a solution, and I found this…a 1” to 3/4” c...
