Workshop tip: Handy little press for inlay

Article Image

When making paterae inlay, I usually end up with clamped blocks all over the shop floor. If you don’t clamp these small veneer patterns flat, they turn into potato chips before you have a chance to use them. Also, I make paterae in batches, and always have extras to store. So I used a press screw from Pony Tools to make this small device for keeping them all flat. To separate individual pieces or groups, I insert melamine spacers.
