A router is a woodworking machine that can be used on Corian. The router uses a motor to spin a cutting bit, known as a router bit. The router is handheld and has a height adjustment knob to vary the cutting depth. The router also has a variable speed control and is available as a fixed base router or as a plunge router. For cutting Corian, the 1/2-inch shaft is recommended.
Put on your safety equipment.
Unplug the router and install the router bit.
Place a piece of Corian on a no-slip pad on your work surface. The scrap piece of Corian needs to be a minimum of 6 inches square for safety.
Adjust the router bit so you will be removing 1/8 inch of material for the first pass. Turn the router's preset depth stop knob to its maximum height position. Lower the height adjust bar so it rests on the preset adjust knob. Tighten the height adjustment bar in place.
Connect the router to a vacuum source for dust collection.
Router the piece of Corian moving in a clockwise rotation, keeping the guide baring riding against the Corian edge.
Twist the preset adjust knob to the next lowest position and lower the router until the height adjustment bar rests on top of the preset adjustment knob and lock the router in place. Router again in a clockwise rotation. This pass will be a 1/4 inch deeper since the preset adjustment knob is set in 1/4-inch increments.
Repeat Step 6 until you have the desired profile.
