Hey folks :) . I haven’t posted much on here lately but I have to post a new jig I have made. I am very impressed with the idea and figured its good to share. I am laminating walnut and cherry together and this jig evenly distributes the pressure. Its very handy for when your clamps are being used and you have no more to spare. Its 2’ x 2’ with various holes for the bolts based on the size of the piece you are making. Check it out…

its a really good idea, and i like it, the only thing i would like to have on it that was different is instead of nuts on the bolts, some kind of other piece that had a handle on it, i wonder if you could make some small wooden handles that the nuts could go into…i think what i would do is get a deep well socket that fits the nuts and i would epoxy it into a wooden handle, that way i would not have to get a wrench out and the handle would allow me to really tighten it down good, great design you came up with mark..i think im going to make one also, grizz

Thanks, great idea. We do a lot of laminating of 1/4” plywood onto 1/2” or 3/4” plywood. Just the other day we laminate 3 sheets of 1/4”. Mainly because we needed maple 3/4” plywood and made our own for one small cabinet we needed to build.
