I don't think there would be a problem with differential ezpansion-contraction. Wood does that across it width, not along the length of the grain.

Did you state the thickness of your 1.25" strips? I've used douglas fir firring strips to laminate a paddle shaft.

I think I would still prefer Ed's four piece scarf jointed ash gunwales. Not cheap, but it isn't going to bankrupt me.
