This is a good point.  I have been trying to work out systems to look
after that the KSS system is one method and the vertical panelling
system used by Farrier also makes sense. I am invisaging either an
adjustable compound curved table producing a half glassed sheet that
can then be bent into shape, or making a mould out of cheap panelling
ply over frames and infusing both sides at once. I have done the on-
line research and both methods seem plausible. The next step is playing
with the stuff and seeing how the reality translates.
