I want to continue experimenting with veneer so I looked around Lumberjocks and found a couple small veneer presses. This is my simple version. Table to 1/2” MDF with some wood strips to help stiffen it a little more. The table is about 13” by 18”. The side members were dadoed to accept the table and mortised to accept the cross member with the veneer screws. I bolted the cross member with 1/2” bolts. Last picture is the press in use. Hope to does a good job…I’ll see in a few hours.

Looks like you did a fine job on this press. I like mine that I made a couple of weeks ago as well. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of it. Enjoy!
