I saw an episode of How It’s Made on the Discovery channel a few weeks ago. They showed clips of the construction process of building a Steinway Piano. The part where they did the lamination bend was fascinating. They applied glue to all the boards, and made a stack of them. Then about eight men lifted the whole dripping mess, and walked it over to the mold. They locked one end in place, and then marched in step around to the other side. When everything was in place they applied all the clamps, and tightened everything up.

I didn’t catch the type of glue that they used, but noticed that no one was wearing a resperator.
