Topic tags/keywords: question

i am having all sorts of problems making a lamination that will stand up to the lathe without going kablooey! using various hardwoods, glued to metal such as pop cans or copper sheeting, making certain that the surfaces are roughed up, but still…, not a very high rate of success. i want to laminate two sizes, the first 3/4 by 3/4 for pen blanks. the second, 4/4 by 4/4 for other projects. any help/hints or tricks will be VERY appreciated.

Are you using epoxy? I would assume that is about the only glue that would hold up.

well, yes, but for bigger surfaces, surely there must be some alternative, as the open time on epoxy is rather short.

Epoxy sounds good to me
