Heavy-Duty Veneer Press
This easy-to-build veneer press ensures that you'll get even clamping pressure distributed across a wide surface.
Adding veneer to a project is a great way to create an eye-catching look without breaking the bank. And one of the most challenging aspects of using veneer is applying consistent pressure across the surface as you glue it in place. This veneer press more than adequately serves the purpose. There are two big advantages to its design: It’s inexpensive to build, and it’s more convenient than manhandling a lot of clamps and cauls to get the job done before the glue sets. The double-layer MDF platens are dead flat and smooth. This means the resulting panel will be smooth with a consistent glue line. All in all, the veneer press is easy to build and yields great results.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
