      @Cleetus McFarland build it up out of poplar, i'd use 1/4" thick peices. change the grain direction every ply, use a quality epoxy like the West System clamp it, then turn it down on a lathe. Works on airplane propellers!

          140 hp? Aren't you guys supposed to be experts? That's a GT -- it made 215 hp stock. You're thinking of the V6 model, which did make 140 hp between 1994-1998.

                            Try a piece of oak turn it in a wood lathe should have much better results, pine wood is just too soft, have fun with crazy ideas.

                                          What would work best requires more work but you could get a solid sheet of 1/4 or 3/8 sheet, cut it into appropriatewidths and lengths and epoxy the layers on top of each other to build it up to the appropriate thickness. I think it will hold

Maybe those bolts compromised the strenght as it cracked the wood grain. Also by soaking the wood it would make it bit more flexible...xP
