Click on thumbnail for full size image

Some of the 20 or so attendees of the Corian Turning workshop

Frank Stanko was the featured presenter

The workshop was held at Art Specialties International in Lancaster NY

Frank brought his mini Jet along with his home built vacuum system

Frank uses Corian to enhance his turnings, as a replacement for exotic woods

Some of Frank's Corian projects

Another of Frank's Corian turnings, including some scroll saw work

Bottle stoppers done in Corian

A prototype wine bottle holder partially done in Corian

Some of Frank's ladies purse mirrors

Corian only is available in 1/2 inch thickness at most

To obtain thicker material for turning, it needs to be glued up

The problem is to obtain the strongest glue joint

Frank shows his method for gluing makes the glue line as strong as the material

Everything needs to be prepared and ready for the gluing process

With both surfaces flat and clean, medium Ca glue is applied
