Actually, in some cases, lamination can be better than a solid piece of wood. It can make the beam/post more stable. Basically, lamination is gluing two or more pieces together. If done right, you can have a stronger and more stable beam than if it was one solid piece…But since you say you don’t know anything about it, you might be better off finding a solid piece and going from there. Go to your local lumber yard that sells construction lumber and inquire there, probably save you some headaches too.
