    Tutorial: Shop Made Cauls

    I recently did a tutorial on making cauls. I'm sure many of you already know how to make cauls but new woodworkers often do not.

    For those of you experienced, I'd appreciate comments and suggestions - especially on better ways to make cauls.

    Nice tutorial Mike. I made some for veneering some tray panels. Instead of using clamps I made some wood screw threads, tapped one of the cauls and bored the mating side. Three sets of cauls on the panel with two pieces of melamine sandwiching the panel works great!

    Looks good to me also. I might try making some now.
