NO. Not without significant pre-meditation.
Can you use 28 hole Rim with a 36 hole hub? - What I learnt.Basically in trying the lace a 36 hole hub to a 28 hole rim, you will end up with spare holes in the hub, this creates effective differences in spoke length, so if you start out with all the same lengths, as I did, some will be too short, others too long.
I tried three times to get the combo to work, but couldn't and my standards are way low, so don't think you can bodge it, you can't. Of course I was also migrating from non-dished to dished which made things sven more difficult.
