    I'd like to find a source for corian

    DuPont, Maker of CorianĀ® , does not like to sell to consumers due to the nasty nature of the glue / adhesive / sealer used by installers when joining pieces of counter top. Also the installers need some training to make the joints waterproof. Adhesive maker does not want average DYI'er near their product.

    The Generic name for similar products is Nairoc (corian spelled backwards.)

    some links:
    http://stonewood.safeshopper.com/?502
    (Art Specialties International. They have some free info for you, look around their web pages)

    http://www.bgartforms.com/
    ( look around at different pages, some good sanding supplies)

    The following is a link the MSDS for DuPont's CorianĀ® products. MSDS is only valid for DuPont product. Look on page 4 for dust mask.

    BTW: on the Scroller Galleries, the horse puzzle I did, I just went to a kitchen remodeler in my area, and boldly (but with hat-in-hand) asked if I could please have a kitchen sink cut-out waste piece. I was totally surprised that I got a piece free. Think about it, at $22.00 per sq foot, a 15 X 23 inch cutout, and I got it free.

    Ebay sometimes has stove top cutouts on sale, but the shipping charges will really hurt. Corian is heavy.

    gosh, I hope I answered your question.

        Cute Pattern.
        I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

        This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

        No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
