Working in a Vacuum

This workshop will dig into the various uses for the vacuum bag in woodworking. We’ll cover basic veneering, curved panel forming, bent lamination, template routing, and using the vacuum as a holding device. This is a technique-oriented workshop; students may apply the information covered to sculpture or functional pieces. Intermediate level: basic hand- and power-tool skills required.
