This episode is part of the Let's Build Series

Woodworking Techniques:

1.) Slicing wood veneer on the Band Saw.
2.) Laminating veneers.
3.) Using a Vacuum Press.

Woodworking tools for this episode include the band saw, table saw, and the vacuum press.

As woodworkers we seek to challenge ourselves as a way to improve our craft. Sometimes we take on a fine woodworking project to learn new techniques of the wood craft. As a result, this requires us to hone our current woodworking skills and also forces us to broaden our range of skills. One way to test ones performance is to work with a minimum amount of material to see if the project can be completed with accuracy and efficiency.This was the goal of creating a jewelry box with beautifully grained premium curly Koa.

Again!

Very good Bob…

Any information on super frugal ways to get a vac-bag system working?
... using eBay, etc.?

Material for making your own bags, etc.?

That stuff is priced out of my league… :) :)

My wife has some special plastic food storage containers where there is a vacuum port in the lids and you take a small manual pump, insert it into the pump port & pump the vacuum pump a little to suck air out of the container before putting it into the frig… Could something like that be jury-rigged into a cheap system?

In case you didn’t know it, I’m cheap… retired.. and must be frugal… :) :)

Thanks again Bob… Good job! I patiently await for Part 2, etc. etc.

This is a frugal way to go as far as vacuum veneering.
