It is the price you pay if you want both space saving and convenience

Jay, I found a couple of reviews on it and it sounds like it doesn't provide a particularly flat surface.

Cool idea though. I wish there was a way for me to set up a portable router table on my apartment balcony. I don't think this table would quite do for me though.

I would think any one of the table top router tables would work for you.

It needs to be portable.

Edit: OK, table top. I have not been happy with the tabletop tables I have tried.

I know what I want, I just don't have the $ to buy it.

Back to veneering….

I picked up a sheet of 4’ X 8’ straight grain cherry. All they had was paper back, 10 mil. As soon as the 500’s show up, I’m going to…gulp….fingers crossed…atempt to veneer the 600. Wish me luck.

A fella at SMC (my other internet haunt) posted a link to a sight where a guy restores old Klipsch horn speakers. He does an amazing job and has step by step tutorials with lot of pics. It didn’t help me as I’m not going to do anything the way he does it, but it is a good sight to waste some time at. http://www.voltiaudio.com/index.shtml

I'm interested in your project, Mike. Are you going to build a vacuum press, use contact cement, the heated glue method or what?

Remember the old measure twice and cut once, and you will be fine. Errors I made were (1) placing one grain pattern in the wrong direction, (2) cutting along a curve with a dull blade, and (3) over sanding near the corners between layers.

Also, I found my guide for finishing the veneer lacquer .

Good luck.

Charles, did you use the KTM-9? Did you spray it? How was your experience?

On the black oak laminate I spraid the KTM-9 surface prep spray but used a regular water lacquer - Daft I think? The surface prep worked well, but trying to get piano gloss on black is a challenge. Very senstive to overspary. The results were ok for a first attempt, but not as good as I hoped for. Can't blame the KTM product. But it is an expensive product compared to those available from Rockler, etc.
