Please be CAREFUL. Corian was largely removed from the consumer market about ten years ago because its dust was found to be extremely toxic. Use a high-grade mask, or better yet, just find a different material.


That must be a different corian. Dupont Corian is very popular today for countertops, etc. I turn it on my lathe for pens all the time.
