Wow! thanks for asking for the info Evie. I added that site to my favs. I have only cut one thing out of Corian. It was a cross with Mary in the middle of it and it was 1/2" thick. I wonder if you can resaw corian and if you do if you will get that high gloss back like is on the front. Or if you can even plane it for that matter.....Tonya

Tonya if you go down farther they will show you how to polish it up so resawing would be possible I would take a scarp piece and try it 1st .

Hi Tonya. yes I did resaw the corian, it was slow going. didn't wont to push it. and then I cut my project out. and simple enouph. I just used my mop sanders. 120 grit ,then 220. grit. and it took the saw lines off. then I just used my buffing compound,red, then white and it made it shine just like I wonted it to.
this stuff is assum. no wood grains. and it cuts great. I have big plans for this stuff. I am sure I am doing it all roung, but it is working for me.. the other things I like, I don't have to use any other finish on it. just buff it out. it cuts like a dream. and I don't notice any differants, in the cutting . like oak. or other hard woods. try it.

Last year I had some incredible good fortune. I was at the Utah State Fair and mentioned to one of the volunteer staff that I'd like to try scrolling with Corian. He told me that he had a few scraps that he was willing to give to me. I told him that all I had was a Camry -- he said that the Corian would easily fit in the back seat. What an Understatement. I filled the back seat, the front seat the floors and the trunk. I could just barely drive out of his driveway, and really scraped bottom. Some of the pieces are 3x4 feet. I have no idea how much he gave me, but it fills a shelf that is 4 feet by 2 feet by 18" tall. Lots of nice colors, lots of granite variations and marble variations. It has been fun. So far the biggest challenge I've had with Corian is drilling holes. The bit always raises a "pimple". Cuttin the Corian goes very well and leaves a nice smooth edge.
