    Could one use two overgrips to build up grip size?

    I think it would only build it up a half size.

    You could add overwraps to get to a size you like but as you build up the size with overwraps you are rounding the bevels. This could lead to trouble with control of the racquet face since the bevels let your hand know if the string face if open or closed. It's best to have your grip built up with a heat shrink sleeve that maintains the bevel angles.
