Once you have used the VacuPress® you will agree that there never really was a practical way to veneer curved shapes. Gone are the frustrating hours of trying to perfectly mate male and female forms, and striving to wrap shaped pieces with veneer. For curved woodwork the VacuPress® bag system is used in two ways.
With the “inner technique” the form and laminations are slid into the bag as shown here:
With the “outside technique” only the laminations are placed inside the bag. The form stays outside. This second technique is commonly used when the form is too large to go inside the bag without difficulty. Instead, the craftsman brings the laminations to the shape of the form. The VacuPress clamps all the laminations to each other, eliminating all but a few clamps.
