I have some air dried oak that i have sticked in my garage for a few years. Some of the section are not quite big enough for what i have in mind, can any one tell me wether it would be ok to laminate it together to make larger sections?

I would like to use it for a timber framed conservatory

Thanks in advance

if you`re careful there is no reason at all why this shouldn`t be possible. larger sections of framing are often jointed.
all the best

Correct selection of grain orientation on laminated timber is likely to be more stable than non laminated, think ply, just use a good glue and make each lamination the same thickness.
