I’d go with urea formaldehyde as the best glue. Epoxies need a little room and if clamped too tightly as in a sharp lamination can fail as all the glue is driven out of the joint. If you want to use epoxy, add a thin glass cloth or the like to prevent this.

Generally though, spring-back can be reduced by using more, thinner laminations.
