Today was THE DAY, when i could try the pressing. Steps of the process were these:

pressing1

At first I was mixing a glue. As my course mate Anita said, the consistence should be as a pancake dough:) Danish, probably!

pressing2

Then came ply covering with the glue.

pressing3

Fixing ply to the mold.

pressing4

The mold was putted in a vacuum bag for pressing ply. The pressure is the bag is around 7kg/1cm2.

pressing5

The vacuum bag with the mold should be kept in oven with 50*C for 2 hours.

pressing7

After 2 hours I got this! The whole shape was quite close to expected.

pressing8

But there are some unavoidable defects. Seems that I have to do pressing once again…
