I made this small veneer press from available materials I had in the shop, except for the press screw which I bought from Lee Valley. The press table is 13” x 20 1/2” which is suitable for my needs of making small boxes, etc. The vertical sides and the cross piece is 2” thick yellow cedar. The table was daedoed into the vertical pieces and the cross piece containing the screw was tennoned right through the uprights. The table (bottom) is 1/2” MDF glued and brad nailed to 1” x 2” supports. The press piece is 3/4” plywood. This unit is heavy and sturdy, which creates more than enough clamping pressure for the size of this press. I’m looking forward to putting it to good use in the very near future.
