Corian Wheels

Been playing around in the Workshop and as I make signs, I had some Corian lying around so thought it would be good to cut a Wheel, very pleased with the results

That's great - might have to research the material myself - not come across it before. How have you cut this?
Very nice anyhow.

Used a Single flute 3mm cutter on my CNC, it is 12mm thick and 145mm dia.
Corian cuts really well and polishes up a treat
It is used as Worktops and most stone looking signs you see out side offices are Corian, it looks and feels like stone, but is Acrylic.

It comes a multitude of colours and thicknesses, off cuts are avalible on Ebay
