This a Corian Egg Cup (Blue), This is my first egg cup and I do not own a lathe, so I made this with mostly my Dremel tool, HF 1×30 sander, some files and rasps and lots and lots of hand sanding.
The reason I have Jim’s name on it is because he is the one who carve me the Corian, and gave me the courage to try and make one with-out a lathe.
It is not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it, I had a base at the bottom made out of some pistachio wood that Jim sent also but it came off during carving so I left it off. My daughter says she likes it this way better anyhow, Kid wins!
I did find out that I need some different style bits to carve the inside better, I will be looking into some Power carving bits.
I had a lot of fun making this, I will say this is messy work! this started out as 5 pieces of blue Corian 1.5” x1.5” and about .5 ” thick, it stands about 2.25 inches tall and is about 1.35 in on the top outside diameter.
The egg I took the picture with is a large egg but really looks like a Jumbo egg!!
Yes Eggs, where harmed in the making of this project, soon after the picture was taken this egg and several other where fried and devoured.
Thank you all for looking comments and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.
