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 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...
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 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
Well, its going to be a long afternoon and evening as I am excited to “press on” and start my first veneering project. I am going to veneer a small panel as an experiment to see how the process works. I purchased a couple of veneer packs on sale at Rockler to use in my experiment. This first panel is 1/4 inch MDF hardboard veneered with movingui, a hard wood from Africa using TiteBond Cold Press Veneer Glue. Veneer – A thin surface layer, as of finely grained wood, glued to a base of...
My vacuum veneer press arrived from JoeWoodworker.com and I am excited to get it set up and start veneering. This episode goes reviews the press and the vacuum bag. Thanks to Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions and JoeWoodworker.com
Well it’s been a weekend, not a lot of work done, but enough to make you think that you’ve accomplished something. Two screw-up’s, two corrections, one modification. Only had to recut two pieces of wood, not too major. Could have been a lot worse, and re-planed 6 boards that were too thick.I left off with the making of the lower case for the Buffet / Hutch. I stated that I needed to do some veneering and also some engineering for the mid drawer slides. I’ve done the veneering and done no ...
