Corian is relatively heavy considering its "plastic". It is very dense but not as heavy as granite. Lots of colours available. Machines easily but makes a mess. I have used it to make a tube amp chassis among other things. You can use Cynoacrylate adhesive "Crazy Glue" for bonding, just make sure the surfaces to be bonded are smooth and adding a little moisture to the bond helps, I usually just exhale on the surface to be bonded then add the glue. Of course as Chrisby wrote there are the "correct" industry type adhesives that are usually used but the "Cyno" holds fairly well but I would not use it for something that my life depended upon

Very elegant Henkjan!


Cambe, I don't have a cutsheet worked out. I just started with the cut sheet I had made for 1.0 and then trimmed things as I needed.


Dave, I think a pair of v2.0 can be made out of 1 sheet of 4x8 wood. The left and right sides can be made out of the width of the sheet easily. The back plate can be made out of the upper section of the wood now that the rear of the enclosure is shorter than 48" high. Just don't screw up either of the 4 side panels because you can only get 4 of those out of a single sheet of wood. I learned that the hard way.

Henkjan, on the Black Beauties, there, very tidy woodwork! In fact, I'm curious exactly how they're assembled, because I can't seem to find any seems anywhere, at least not anything that would indicate 16mm thick panels. Are they all miter joints? Any in-progress construction pics?

yes, they are miter joints. what I did was lay out the panels on the floor (outside up) then tape it together with what we call "painter's tape" (the paper type tape) flip it over, apply normal white wood glue (spead it out with a brush) and then close the whole thing, apply some more tape where needed, let it dry for 15 minutes, remove the tape and clean any excess glue, and done. (then sand and varnish of course)

I had the panels made by a pro woodworker, he used a CNC router to make them the trick is to make the angle of the miter just a bit 'lean', so that the outside is certainly tight together

not from this build, but here are some from someone else's project, I think you'll get the idea from that...

Awesome!

I was thinking about doing something just like this, recently, but hadn't thought of the tape idea. Thanks for the pics and everything
