The Deck. Cutting and fitting the working surface.
By Deadline on Aug 28 2010 Category:Vacuum Form

The Deck
The working surface(the deck) is made out of a single heavy piece. Which is good I guess. You don't want it moving. Cut from 3/4" particle board. It takes a good bit of saw and jig saw work. If I were to do this again I think I would make this in several pieces. While one piece is probably fine for the 2' x 2' and 2' x 3' it's a cumbersome size board for 2' x 4'. I see no reasons this couldn't be two or even three sections. Making it out of several parts would also make getting to the underside plumbing easier, which I can see needing to do when I change out the Platens.

This is an easy step. Just layout the pattern and cut away. Makes a bit of saw dust but nothing hard.
