Once each of the three bent laminations was ready and removed from the form the edges were jointed and then ripped to width to make them paralel. This allows for a more accurate cleanup of the glue and which then allows for another round of jointing and ripping on the table saw. This is done taking off as little as possible. Once done each of the three peices looks pretty much like this.
