17 How to Make A Vacuum Bag for Veneering

This video was published May 31, 2007 & was never added to YouTube...until today!

In this episode, I show you the process of making your own vacuum bag. There are two materials to choose from, polyurethane and vinyl. My old bag is made from vinyl but this time I am going to try my hand at polyurethane, which is supposed to be more durable. My source for all for all of the materials and the instructions is one of my favorite sites on the web, http://veneersupplies.com Not only does Joe provide detailed tutorials and information on http://joewoodworker.com/veneering/makingbags.htm making your own vacuum bag and http://joewoodworker.com/veneering/decidingtobuild.htm making your own vacuum press, he also provides all the materials you need to do it. He even sells pre-made bags.

The results of this little project are not exactly what you might expect. It was quite a learning experience. If you are considering making your own bag, this video is a must see!
