Epoxy 1/2 inch slabs together to gain the thickness you need.
Thanks but no. I turn my wood on a lathe and while I still could do that I'm not looking for even more places to deal with something separating or dealing with any balance issues. I will just order the right wood and deal with the shipping charges. I'll have wood for 50 or 60 swimbaits so the $40 shipping charges aren't really that important.
