Here is a great book...
http://www.violins.ca/books/bass_making_book.html
not sure why you would want a laminated one though... If you are going to make one... go all the way and carve one with a real top & back! I am guessing that by the time you build the moulds and establish a process, you can carve the real thing and have a real instrument Very Happy
...Keep in mind I am not a bass maker.
Cheers, Mat

This answer is probably not relevant anymore to you, but you could take a look at: http://www.chesostringedrepairs.com/

That site gives a nice impression of building a DIY double bass.
