I'm not exactly sure how the vacuum things work, but I would think that they want to force a flexible substrate up against a firm piece of glass.  Being rigid, I don't think it would work with plywood. 

At the time I made those comments I might have been experiencing sharpness issues because of wood warpage.  I don't have that anymore.  My pictures are sharp.  I'll post some close-up examples soon.

I was just reading your previous thread about gum on plywood and the comments about sharpness...I was wondering if it's possible to put these in a vacuum press for exposure?
