Who here can identify this????

Edited about an hour later: You guys were on to me right away. It is Corian. Extremely easy to cut to almost perfect joining pieces. But nasty to turn, the shavings go everywhere and don’t even try to turn it without a respirator. Sanding is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. 60G then 100G – 150G 220G – 400G – 1000G – 4000G – 8000G – 12,000G—About 30 seconds with each grit was all it took.

It’s a bowl.

Looks like it’s made of Corian.

Thanks Jim: you are the one that started me with Corian. Oh & I glued the pieces up with CA. The Corian distributor told me that CA would not work. I am going to take this piece back to give it to him. to put on the front counter. Who knows, maybe I can work with him to make inlays for his customers counter tops.

Got to love that solid surfacing for unique projects. Try you a coffee mug and birthday cake sometime. Be sure to do the cake for the lady of your life.

Nice job indeed Dave, I use a bit of corian & find it polishes very well with Brasso after 600 grit
well done

Beautiful ! Words cannot describe how beautiful it is. What kind of adhesive did you use?
