"Corian"

Been thinking of buying some Corian to turn. Anybody turning this material?

Here's a good site for learning the properties, if you're not familiar:

Don't buy it. Find a countertop store and see if they will give you some cut offs or cut outs. Usually they have some smaller pieces around that you can get for free or cheap.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Something new to turn! I love my lathe!

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!
