Default Corian Panther

This is a Steve Good Pattern and it is about 14 inches tall. The corian I used was a sink cutout from a kitchen install. The corian is 1/2 inches thick. I used a #9 ultra Reverse blade to cut the pattern.

And you can wipe it off with a damp cloth! Nice cutting, you must have a good dust pick up system.

Sweeeeet cut DW, did you get any melting? Or does Corion not melt when cutting?

nice looking job on the cat DW, i second the remark about you being fast

wood dog, you have to cut corian at a slower pace to keep it from melting, unless you have the resin based corian….there are at least 2 types that i know of…acrylic based, which will melt back together if cut too fast or slow, and the resin based, the waste turns to powder, instead of clumping like the acrylic based

when i cut corian, i stack cut one type of each together, that way there’s not much melting going on for me

I gave this one a shot as well. I knew I had some stuff in the shed with "stripes" that would work well for a big cat. Not sure what the wood is but I sanded and finished with some Danish Oil. Unfortunately I don't have small enough bits for my drill so a few of the narrow inside cuts show the point of entry. Also, I'm having a hard time getting the end of my cut to meet flush with the start of the cut as can be seen on a few of the narrow "stripes" inside the pattern.
