Had a challenge to see what I could do with Corian (bench top material) off cuts that were given to me. I also
added some perspex (plexiglass) which were also free off cuts. I have never used this material before but applied the same methods as I would if using wood. I used CA glue (instant glue) on these and have found it much better than the polyurethane based glue I used on the first project.
Pic 1 and 2 I have never done a open segmented project before, this one is 12” tall and has a glass insert
Pic 3 I laminated some layers of perspex to make the segments.
Pic 4. Need a lot of sanding to bring up the surface on this one
Pic. My first attempt at using Corian, has been shown previously.
I know this is not wood but what a great alternative from having wood shavings all over the place, now I have
a white dust cover on the deck and looks like snow in summer.
Hope none of you old wood turners have a heart attack after seeing these on site but you will need to come out here to sue me.
Thanks for looking. By the way it is very comfy under my rock.
