Laminating Laminated tops??

Quick question folks.

If I made two tops by edge glueing boards together could I face glue the tops together without major consequence to make one thick top?

I realize the ideal is start from thicker stock, but the ideal nearly always escapes me...I'm sure you can all relate.

Yes that would work but large areas face glued together tend to stick around the edges and the glue stay wet in the middle for a long time. It would be better if you would use a resin glue to laminate the two pieces together. Once that type glue is mixed together it will harden even in a air tight container. Try to make each panel as flat as possible and use a liberal amount of glue to be sure there is no air pockets in the middle.
