Making your own? What type of wood are you laminating? What glue are you using?

Now comes the fun part, precision drilling. I guess you'll need to chamfer the holes as well.

What a great project! Good luck!

Is there a weight you're shooting for? did you design it yourself?

Quite a beauty!

Beautiful wood and nice work with the laminations.
Are you planning to use any paint ?
I really like the all wood look of the older wood rackets c1900s.
I recently got a NOS wood racket c1920 that is massive and has like a 5 1/2 grip. Hanging it on the wall as a piece of art.

I actually plan to put an outer wrap of carbon

I assume you using carbon to sturdy it up for hitting ?
Would be nice if there was a translucent carbon or maybe several epoxy over coats that could still show the beautiful wood.
