Here all the cores are done, and we are looking at the whole assembly as a mock-up, checking things like the overall length and height etc.

The vacuum press is my primary device for the formation of these curved panels. This is the most vacuum press intensive project I have undertaken since the project I call "Ovals" back in 1996/97. Essentially there are two steps involved with forming these panels: the first is to form the core of the panel, that is done using four layers of 1/8" doorskins (plywood); then the second step is to veneer each panel. So every panel goes into the press twice.

These are the rough panels after they have been veneered. Obviously there is alot of trimming still to do.
