OK I know it’s not wood, but it could be PART of a woodworking project.
I have bone colored corian in my kitchen. I’ve also used it to cover the window sills where the dogs slobber after getting a drink and then going and looking out the window. Anyways… I’ve used it outdoors for a coiple of small things and it really seems to hold up well outside. Made some hatch covers for a friend’s boat as an experiment and…. 9 years now they still look good.
Anyways… On CL here locally there is a guy that has TWO 12 ft x 30 inch pieces. $150 each. Bone colored. He has them listed as 3/4in thick but I’m wondering if they really are 3/4 or if they’re 1/2 inch like what I have. At 3/4 inch those 12 footers will be HEAVY.
OK, I’m rambling. Here’s the question:
Would you buy something like this basically “on speculation”? Like I don’t have a project designed around this material, but I would like to make some stuff for myself like tables for around the grill and smoker, maybe a picnic table type thing, end tables?
I don’t have anywhere I can store it flat, so I’d have to store it on edge, which I’ve already proven to myself is fine. I stored some like that for months in my garage and it didn’t warp at all or anything.
So…. $150 to $300 for material that would need to be stored and for which you really didn’t have a specific use, BUT seeing it available at that price is like….. how often is THAT going to happen?
What would you do?
