I would have thought that if there were enough layers of lamination then the longtitudanal/transverse ones would cancel out to give a uniform sort of behaviour.

Hooke's law in its most general form contains 81 variables that can accommodate pretty much any material characteristic in all three dimensions. So to answer your question, does plywood follow Hooke's Law...yes it does. Does it follow the 1-D description that everyone knows? No. It does not.
