During the restoration and re-painting of Sea Lark, I decided to apply Silky Oak veneer to the transom. This could be easily applied by vacuum bagging. To do this I needed to build a DIY vacuum bagging system as professional systems were way out of reach.

Vacuum bagging uses a vacuum pump to extract the air from inside a vacuum bag and by doing so compress the part under atmospheric pressure in order for the clamping and hardening process to take place.
