Looked at all the forums and was not sure where to out this as obviously woodworking is the stated theme but do any of you make things, other than countertops out of Solid Surface?

Pens have been around forever but I’m seeing things like outdoor chaise lounges, benches, entire back lit bars…even toilet seats :O: made out of it. A whole lot of thermoforming going on.

I use solid surface material as an inlay on some of my turning projects. Look at my proects and you’ll see a lamp that I posted there with an end table. The forming you are talking about is done by building up the solid surface material and routing it with a standard router and special router bits made for solid surface material. I’m now planning to incorporate some in my bowls as well.

i have made simple items out of solid surface such as…. ash trays, plaques, note pad holders, window sills, shelves, i even did a fireplace surround. the fire place did not work so i didn’t have to worry bout the heat..

I have done turnings, fret brackets, window sills, table tops, book shelves, fire place mantels, outdoor cabinet doors, and much more out of solid surface materials. It’s very simple to work with.
