I have come into pocession of some used Corian countertops that I like to cut, resize, rejoin and reuse. My first go at this so I’m looking for the “tried and proofed” method. All the runs will be straight. Actually I have two long pieces. The length of the piece with the sink is 6 inches short of what I need it to be. I need to cut 6 inches off one piece and add it to the other. It will be going into a non-profit refurb house and we are trying to reduce as much cost as possible. Anyone have a suggestion.

There is a special glue that is used for this. It comes in colors that match the Corian. You can cut this with any carbide saw that you would use for cutting fine wood. Glue it and clamp it then you can sand it out with a sander. If you do it correctly it wil be flawless and no one will know. If you do not do a flawless job, everyone will know…..LOL Sorry that is about all the help I can be. Use carbide tools where possible and do wear a mask. that stuff is pretty tough on the lungs.

In the past people that make solid surface counter material would not sell it to anyone that had not taken their course on installation and that was expensive since it included some tools. That way they kept the product out of the hands of DIY folks and it always looked good when installed so they could sell more. I have seen it done and I have made some cuts to install small pieces but that is the limit from here. I have seen some installed that looked like a hatchet was used on it too. Call a cabinet maker and ask him to come do it for you. It is reasonable for a good top.

Since this is a refurb for a nonprofit deal call a cabinet maker and see if he will come do this job for nothing. He should be as big hearted as you…..right?

Knowing about the special glue for the first time. As this cmes in various colors, this can give original looks to the material. Where is it available? I have checked in my nearby shops, and it is not available anywhere there. Hope you can dish vs directv help

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

Once I thought about things like: why such information is for free here? Because when you write a book then at least on selling a book you get a percentage. Thank you and good luck on informing people more about it… designer cheap bags
