It can be almost impossible if you use a cheap low quality plywood. The cheaper plys use a crappy core with many voids and it creates some blowouts. Go really slow once you get close to the final diameters and use lots of sand paper graduating grits from 80-220. The ply we use in our shop is a better grade so we have pretty good luck. Plenty of OOPS turnings though!

Wow, I would not have thought to try plywood. I’ll bet Baltic Birch would really turn good.
