Bernadette will definetly know this, but the question is general.
While looking at their Mlabar II construction photos at
I've seen a bunch of frames that were stacked against a wall and later fastened to a deadwood.
Were the frames laminated?
It puzzles me that I've seen no molds that would be used to mount steam-bent frames, as described in Macintosh's book. Are therefore the pre-bent (laminated?) frames in Decathur's case used a some sort of molds and secondary frames are put it later, as seen in the photographs?
