Most likely one of the many types of Garolite. They are either epoxy or phenolic laminates of fiber glass or fibers of cotton. The off green you describe sounds like G-10 the orange most likely LE. Can be acquired at most supply houses that stock raw materials. McMaster Carr and MSC are two that come to mind. Worked with carbide tooling.
