First of all this is a great site, although this is my first post I have searched through the forums many times before. Now to my question.
I am starting to build a L shaped desktop for my cousin, and it is about 9 feet and 6 feet and 22 inches wide. She wants me to use some existing walnut that was left over from her father (since past). She would like it to look/be 2” thick so to maximize the walnut on hand I am considering building a platform using 3/4 ply and then laminating/glueing 3/4 solid walnut to the top of the plywood and then covering the edges with basically a 2×2 of solid. I am thinking this will help keep the top more stable through the years. Am I thinking about this the right way?
All existing stock on hand is 1” to 3/4” and not enough to to build up entirely of solid to get 2” in thickness.
