This is my 3rd Scroll Saw Shell. This Shell is made of White Corian. Corian is an easy material to work with. It does require a special blade in the scroll saw called a Polar blade. I sometimes believe it cuts easier than wood in that the material is consistent when it is being worked and cut and not affected like wood can be with the variations in grain. I used 5 wedges on this Shell which resulted in 63 segments. The Shell curls inside approximately 3 times. The finish is wet sanded using micro mesh sanding pads up to 12,000 grit. The stand is difficult to see in the photos of the Shell so I included a photo of the stand as well. Thanks for looking.

Nice – good job but I think I prefer your wood shells because of the grain
