building with laminated parts

hi, new to the neighborhood: rummaged about the forums but could not fine anything thats speaks directly to my problem, and that is: im considering building pedal powered woodworking machines. sort of copies in wood of 18th and 19th cent. tools. to immate the old cast forms and for strength i believe laminated members would be best. i think i can manage the laminations ok but have no idea of how to join the pieces. are laminanated parts assembled with the same joints as those made of solid materials? and is a book to be reccommended on the subject? thanks micheal

I don't have any experience with the equipment you are seeking info on. What I can offer is nearly 40 years ago I worked for a company that made sailboat parts for Chrysler Sailboat. We made a rudder handle that was laminated strips of honduras mahogany and ash which was put in a form and glued to a curve shape. After shaping and sanding the end that fit into the mechanics was just square where it was slipped in and two bolt ran through it. It was the same as if it were a solid piece of wood.
