Something I had not fully considered was that by extending the curvy jig in the way I had, I created some rather large void spaces which no longer exerted any pressure on the clamped veneer boards. The result being some very nasty bumps and air bubbles on the inside curve where the pressure was most needed.
To alleviate this for the next glue up, I created 4 large wooden blocks, molded to the shape of the rest of the curve so as to have no void space. Rapidly running out of veneered panels to use, I decided to use the slightly defective panel for the drawers. Since it will be sliced into segments for the individual drawers, I figure this gives me the opportunity to squirt some glue in and make repairs as I go.
