in the bag

I thought I’d describe the veneering process. Here’s a photo of the walnut veneer taped together. There’s enough to cover two sections.

Here it is with the waste trimmed off…

I’ve cut out a circle from some MDF to use as a cutting template. I then use a scalpel to cut out the section for the burr veneer to fit into.

I use my Pizzi glue spreader to give an even coat of glue over the whole panel. I’m using Titebond Coldpress glue.

Into the vacuum bag it goes. The bag is sealed and the air is sucked out. The air pressure from outside the bag gives a huge and even force over the whole surface of the panel.

Here’s the vacuum pump.

Here are 4 panels together to make a whole screen.
