These are examples of my first attempts at turning solid surface on the wood lathe. The material happens to be Corian.
Yes, I know this is a woodworking site. However, as woodworkers we at some time are going to have the opportunity to incorporate other material forms into our woodworking. I use solid surface material for inlay and other accent combinations. This particular case these are solid surface with no wood. But, as mentioned, they were turned on a wood lathe. It is no different than using a metal hinge or screws; not everything is always made of wood in a wood project.
The picture does not do the justice of showing how glossy the one on the left actually is. The one on the right is more of a satin finish. Both are smoooooth and great to touch.
The on on the left is Corian Platinum and Corian Dawn Beige on the right.
I hope you like them and it inspires you to give it a try sometime. I have another piece on the lathe as I write this. Will post it in a few. :)
Thanks for looking. Enjoy.
