Would this combo technically work ? Thunderbolt 3 - Intel NUC

So I have been playing around with the idea of building an eGPU for my i7NUC(8559U) as in the coming months I will be upgrading from a 1070 to a 2070 on my work rig.
I have no other use for the 1070 and also have no interest in selling it, might as well try to get my little bedroom PC ready for some gaming. 
My sensible option is to go with a Razer Core X.
But I'm also tempted of taking the DIY route.
I have a 600w power supply not being used and it won't be difficult to rig up a case.
So as I was thinking of this possibility I came up with this combo :
- a M.2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter : this one or more likely this one
- and a PCIe to M.2 gpu dock : this one
Does this have any chance of working?

Sorry to resurrect a dead post, but I was just looking to do this exact combination, did you end up attempting it? If so, how did it go?
