The history of optical fabrication is traced from Roman times to the 1900's to indicate the level of the art. This background serves as a reference for discussing the particular optical fabrication problems associated with grazing incidence optics. It is suggested that "bend and polish" techniques may be particularly applicable to the fabrication of vacuum ultraviolet and x-ray collimator optics.
