If anyone needs tips on how to work with these products, I have been working with them for 6 years. It is definitely not like turning natural woods.

I’ve done a few things with spectra ply, I didn’t find it that much different that turning natural woods.

How about writing your experiences up in a blog or online class?

Why is this stuff so expensive? Is there a way to make it yourself or is it even worth it?

If go to google images will find some very interesting plywood turnings, think a few folks here have done some of it too. Folks have been gluing up quality grade plywood and turning for long time. Construction grade might have a lot of voids & gaps.

Not sure making your own laminated dyed wood worth the effort. People have laminated contrasting woods for both small & large turnings. Just google laminated woodturnings.
