My daughter commissioned a serving board for her father in-law for Christmas. Mike is the go to guy for ribs in the extended family and loves doing it.

It was made of a Corian sink cutout, routed with CNC, filled with craft clay that bakes to harden, band saw to trim outside, corners routed round and then salad bowl finish for the clay.

Router bit was two flute 0.05” and the cut was 2.0 mm deep. Corian is 1/2” thick. On my machine the cutting took about 30 minutes. Deciding on fonts and which pig to use took couple days.

Mike is going to make a decision when it is given to him later today on how he wants to use it and then either feet on the back for table use or slotted holes for hanging.

Steve – great idea for the Corian. That CNC is something I need to look at. The possibilities….

Have your say...
