Well, my dad had a bit of Corian counter top laying around so I decided to try to make a nut out of it. It tools really easily to tool (it took me about 3 minutes to get a nut-sized piece using just the table saw and a disc sander.) and is supposedly pretty hard. I'm thinking it would make a perfect nut for my bass project. What I'm wondering is if anyone else has done this and can share their experience with this material? If it really works as a nut then I'm pretty happy because we have a lot of it laying around and it could be done with pretty much any color and pattern known to man. The piece I used looks just like a bone nut (in fact, the piece of Corian was labeled 'bone') but there are so many color choices.
