I am making keepsake boxes for Christmas. I plan to do some inlay. I want a pure black for part of the design. Would Corian (the stuff of bathroom and kitchen counters) be suitable as an inlay material? Any other idea short of using ebony wood?

It will work fine. Don’t worry about the finish. In fact it will polish nicely without finish.
