Check out the pictures of this project.
I often laminate or veneer sheet goods. Not having the money for a vacuum setup, I created a Lamination Press that stows above my workbench and out of the way when not in use. The press has four cauls that suspend from the main beam, and can be configured every six inches (there is space for 10 cauls).
Turning a nut against the lower face of the main beam tightens the cauls down. With a 3ft x 5ft capacity, this press has come in handy many times for gluing up field panels and for veneer work.
You can see the laminate press in action in the Oak Blanket Chest video.
