Nice little project and a good reason to use some of your Veneer. I still like that press you made from the old planner.

It's a beauty, David. The lines along the top looked like highlights on a curve - very effective.

Thanks, Paul. It looked like it needed something so I added those and she liked it.

It looks like the veneer press is working out fine for you, that was a good reuse of the old planer. Do you find that it restricts you any to the size of the project?

Yes, Herb, it works well but is limited to the space of the platens and the guide columns. But that's ok because I rarely do large inlay or projects. The height is surprising, though. I don't recall exactly how high it will go but it's got to be close to 6" if you crank it all the way up.

That might be great for veneering a jewelry box after it was built....
Just thinking,

It would probably be better to veneer the panel for the lid prior to attaching it to the box. This press stands a chance of collapsing a jewelry box and depending on how the box and lid were made maybe not get good pressure in the middle area of the lid, only around the perimeter.
