Looking for some help from anyone who makes hardwood stocks, or has knowledge on the subject. I'd like to say that I am an avid wood worker, hunter, and shooter. I'm planning to take the plunge into making my own rifle stock and have considered buying a boyds laminate blank to shape it out of. I've considered making one out of a solid piece of walnut or maybe something a little more exotic eventually, but for my first stock, I'd like to keep my overhead down in case I really F it up. My real questions is, would it be feasible to take three 3/4 inch planed pieces of hardwood ( say walnut, maple, walnut) and laminate them together with some type of epoxy and use them as a stock blank? I would think that as long as the epoxy/glue was strong enough, that there wouldn't be any problems. If anyone would like to chime in and help me out, I would be very grateful.
