Chris McGovern of Nevada City, California makes carbon bikes by hand. He starts with stock carbon tubing, which he mitres and fits in a fixture, then wraps the joints with prepreg carbon cloth. Then he vaccum bags the frame and bakes the whole thing in an oven he built out of sheet metal. The result is prettier than many molded carbon bikes.
