Has anyone run across a good supplier of corian that sells ivory? I see it used in gun grips (called IVORY- LUX (http://www.gungrip.com/items_IL.html)) and I'm looking to get it in small blocks or sheets.

The stuff looks pretty sharp and wouldn't mind getting our hands on some. Has anyone worked with this before?

As always, thanks in advance.

Chris,

I used to buy 2nds from an outfit in Minneapolis MN. They would sell it at 1/2" thicknesses and IIRC it was called "bone white". Most of the stuff was remnants but they also sold whole sheets in any quantity you would like. I really liked working with it as it cleaned up nice and lasered VERY well as well as held color fill. I used it for inlay work after I resawed it to 1/8" thickness. Check around your area for the "countertop" folks--usually they're more than happy to give it away so they don't have to clean it up.

Though Corian did make a color called Ivory many years ago, Bone Corian is the most common for gun grips right now. That will change to Bisque or Vanilla as Bone has been discontinued.

I still have some Bone in 3/4" and 1/2" though the pieces are small.
