What's the best way to cut a Corian counter top ? I know you just about
have to use a Corian trained installer...but for simply cutting a
counter...what's the best way to cut...saw...router...metal blade jig
Thanks, Tim R
Any carbide woodworking tolls will work in Corian. It would
probably be best to create a template and use a carbide router

I've fabricated several countertops, some fairly elaborate. After carefully
measuring several times :-) use any suitable saw to rough cut close to your
layout line, then finish with a router guided by a clamped straightedege or
other template. It cuts like butter.
I have had excellent luck with a 7.25" carbide blade in my 10" table
saw. The narrower kerf and slower tip speed eliminates chipping. You
can clean up the edges and round them over with a router. I also had
good luck with fine paper in a sander.
Getting Corian is hard but working ity is easy when you figure out it
is hard and a bit brittle.
