I found the plywood at a lumber supply store just outside of Atlanta.
I'm not sure if it is stronger than using bendy ply. It was an incredibly strong chair. I chose the baltic birch because I liked the subtle grain, it was cheap, and I could pick it up locally.

Nice result, love these types of scrap stools. It would be awesome to see if you could get the resin to bleed a bit more into the paper to create some sort of gradient.
Did you make the template? Any tips on which software you used to create the patterns?

Nice! What kind of stuff are you making?
I will have to try this out! The MDF printing plates don't hold up very well after repeated use.
I'm working on it!
Swedes still swear by their wooden folding rulers.
I tried that in the last version of this project. The resolution isn't great when printing on a Makerbot or similar FDM printer. It is a matter of cost really; SLA would probably give you the resolution but at a higher price. Best bet for the highest quality would be to have polymer plates made.
Good to know!

Those are handle spacers made out of acrylic. you could make them from mdf if you want to. They are in the Hand&Ink_Press.AI file under the label 'handle spacers'. As long as the material you use is 1/4 inch thick they should work as spacers.
No worries, I haven't built one in awhile either. The platen is made with the laser cutter and mdf. The impression plate can be made with a laser cutter and acrylic or you can order polymer plates from a company that makes them (I know of boxcar press). I guess the max size would be 2.5 is 4 inches for the impression plate; I just made the impression plate and paper business card sized.
Those are the cap nuts you can get from McMaster. You only need 2 (4 was a typo) to hold the handle assembly together.
