Stan,
 
Horizontal laminations are better - use a strong brittle glue (I always liked cascamite, which may not be available here). Teak is bad - too oily to bond. Red oak tends to be a good choice and is should be available locally. Mahogany is also good and not too hard to find, but why use an exotic wood?
 
Preparation of glued surfaces is all important. Try to be sure wood is straight and not warped. Use wood clamps during the gluing process.
 
Weight is not an issue?
