Very nice work, JT! How do you do the engraving?
Thanks for the compliment.Very nice work, JT! How do you do the engraving?
I like working with it a lot. I was a solid surface CFI for 27 years before retirement. I still do quite a bit if Corian CNC cutting for several of my old competitors. I even help with the fabrication when they need it.Very nice JT how do like working with Corian
Thanks. Engraving via CNC router. I'm a firm believer in the old saying "The only difference between men and boys is the size and price of their toys".I really like the clock in the first picture. Like David said how do you do the engraving?
Thanks, I made quite a few of that clock design (Toilet Seat). The movement is an inexpensive quartz unit I purchased online. I saw a wood version in a local store. I just copied it.I really like the clock in the first picture. Like David said how do you do the engraving?
I did a lot of inlay work in the Corian. After engraving the material we would used the hot melt glue gun to create a border (dam) around the grooves to trap the liquid epoxy or acrylic resin. Air bubbles sometimes would give us a problem in the beginning when we first started doing it. We found using the flat tip bit helped create/trap the air so we switched to a round nose bit to eliminate the sharp inside corner. It also helped to use a small needle and run it around in the groove to break any trapped air bubbles loose letting them float to the surface. After the inlay material cured I would use a spoil board surfacing cutter to cut the surface smooth then sand and polish.Very nice Jim. I'm curious how you managed to fill the engraving with the colored epoxy and do such a smooth job.
It's not marble, it's Corian which is an acrylic plastic material made by DuPont for use in kitchen/bath counter tops as well as other uses. The marble effect is formed when the 1/2" thick (470mm) sheets are poured. The rectangular clock is made from 4 layers (470mm) of sheet stock bonded together to yield the full thickness.Ok, as everyone else seems to either know or missed it. How do you get the marble effect????? I tried ignoring the fact you routed marble but it's just bugging me, so I gotta ask.
