Some time ago I visited a local commercial cabinet maker who gave me several Corian sink cut outs. I need a resaw guide. I Decided to use the Corian. Just cut to size, glued and screwed. Nothing fancy but it works like a charm. It’s heavy, not effected by humidity and very easy to work with basic tools. Oh yea, and, it cost about $100.00 bucks less than a store bought.

Looks good. I never thought about sink cut outs. May have to talk to the local cabinet shops here. Thanks for the idea.

How do you cut it, with a table saw? Standard blade? Looks great.

Yes Tim, cuts on a table or band saw, standard blade, you can even route it with carbide tools. Do predrill as deep as the length of the screw before you inserts screws .

Nice design. I’ve never seen one quite like that before. Just curious, but how do you adjust the fence to accomodatefore bandsaw blade drift? Most band saws will saw exactly square to the saw table and therefore the fence has to be adjusted slightly to accomodate. How have you accounted for this?
