This was kind of an experiment I started months ago using corian and wood together on a project and just buff finishing the both of them together. This dagger is made from dark gray corian and sycamore wood on the grips.
It is 9 1/4” long and 3” wide and about 1” thick at the handle. This was started in the lathe with a 3” wide piece of corian on one end and I turned the shape of the handle with wood on it and then finished sanding it to shape
I had to wait until I got my Beall buffing arbor made. I finished it today and it works slick. I think the wood would have had a higher gloss had it been lacquered before buffing. Next time!!
Next I need to make a box to keep it in.
