How is Corian cut? Can it be done using a router and a template. I'm thinking of installing a countertop for an island and figured maybe I could get a left over piece and cut it to size and finish it myself?

I asked a friend who installs Corian how they cut it. With a table saw.
So I imagine you could rough cut it with a table saw and then route the profile you desire into it.

Fellas, I don't believe you are correct. I think you will loose your warranty on Corian that you cut yourself, if you can get it at all. Please check it out first. I believe Corian actualy has lisenced folks who have been trained to install Corian.

I got some Corian through a cabinet maker. I did the work, myself.
You can cut it on a tablesaw, but it requires a special blade. I cut mine with a router and template. Three passes is better than one.

Your all right.
Corian can be worked with normal wood tools. To install full kitchen counters you need to be an installer trained by the maker. But you can work with it in smaller chunks without that training.

That is the link I tried to posted above. I guess, something went wrong.

I don't think that your DSL likes you. One click and the page opened for me.
