lumberjoe I would be careful, with the force you can exert with lag bolts it might be posssible that the force is fairly pin pointed around the bolt causing the area between bolts to be bowed out some. This wouldnt be that much a concern as far as the glue line integrity to me as it would causing internal stresses length wise in your glue up from the wood wanting to straighten itself out, however slight it is.
