Turning

turning laminated beams

mark paulley
Has anyone turned a laminated beam? My new subdivision is pitching more wood than you can imagine, the dumpster are full of good wood, maybe not for turning fine pieces but good to practice on.
I found a 7"x 3.5"x 6' long laminated beam that weighs alot. Can this be turned or will this be a wasted effort? Can it ruin tools?
Thanks for your help
