Can I laminate a neck horizontally as opposed to vertically?


Recommended Posts

I wasn't able to locate any threads related to this, but I was wondering if gluing several ten inch pieces together would be structurally sound on a neck-through build.

The neck would look something like this

Half of me thinks that glue is stronger than wood so it wouldn't detract from stability but the other half of me says it will be weaker. Thoughts?

If you overlap the joints like what is done with bowling alleys and the like, you can do it, but I don't know how it would work with stability or longevity.

If each piece overlapped, like bricks in a building, you'd need minimum three or four layers I reckon, so yeah, sure, you could, it'd possibly work, I'm sure it'd possably last if you have excellent joinery skills - but why?
