    Exclamation Vaccum Board Pressing Help Please :)

    Hello, I recently bought a roarockit air press. I am doing this as most of my friends want me to build them boards after they road the first one and I need a faster easier way to press shapes I made the first one by hand pressing with c-clamps and 2x4's pushing concave in the middle. But if I put my first deck in the back and then my veneers and suck the air out will the veneers press to the shape of the deck under it instead of making a foam template to use?

    Thanks for any help it is much appreciated!

    You might get away that: Take steps to prevent the deck from flattening out under pressure. Also be aware that there is a generational loss of detail when using this approach......I would encourage you to take a stab at shaping a foam mold. It is easier than you think.

    That is the general idea. Roarockit has compiled some very helpful tutorials. This link might work?

    I have a bunch of tutorials at Roarockit about shaping foam including for a drop deck. Have a look at them. It's very easy especially for a 1" drop deck with basic tools. Definitely easier than trying to use a real board for a mold.
