Wondering if anyone has tried making kits such as bottle openers , pizza cutter, ice cream scoop from color ply. My thinking is the drilling the end for the mounting bolt would not be as strong as solid wood. Has anyone had experience with this or have thoughts?

Never used color ply but if you are skeptical about it you could drill a hole in a longer rod and thread it to fit scoop.  Drill a deep enough hole and epoxy it in.

It’s not color ply but similar laminated construction

instead of gluing/threading into a hole I used a threaded insert. The insert allows the handle to be removed so the utensil can be washed.

when threading the insert, use a small greared hose clamp to keep the laminations from being stressed

Is that the same thing as "spectra ply"? I have no personal experience but I've always assumed it's pretty strong.

I've used it many times and played around with it in different glue patterns. I've had no problems with it
