You want to make your own plywood?

There is a product called SpectraPly, google it and I'm sure you'll find a few suppliers.

Dale - I would recommend that you take Ron's suggestion.  If you dye it yourself, you may find the dye is not colorfast and will get "muddy" when glued or finished.

Good Luck! Thumbs Up
