Foilboard (Pocket/Strapless) Paulownia

want to build a simple pocket foilboard with paulownia and glass. edges with resin and cottonflocks, foil attachement too.

my question: is it ok to laminate with just one (heavy) layer of glass (triax 830g/m).

goal is maximum of stability and stiffness.

board size 89*39cm

thx
