From Youtube Tips from a Shipwright

In this video Lou shows how he laminates the frames on his Norwegian built 8 Metre (1948). The wooden frames are made of parallel pieces sandwiched between two progressive bevel sawn laminates and then glued together with epoxy. In Part 2 the frames will be installed while the glue is still wet

In Part 2, Master Shipwright Louis Sauzedde demonstrates his method for installing laminated frames during the restoration of his own 1948 Johan Anker 8-meter. In Part 1, Sauzedde cut the laminates and applied the glue, now watch as he installs the frame in place with the glue still wet, and uses screws to clamp the laminates together.
