    What exactly was the “solid surface material” that you were turning and how did you laminate it up – what kind of adhesive was used between the layers?

      Hello Jay,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      The brand is Corian. Rough up the material with 100-grit sandpaper and glue the layers together with two-part epoxy.

      Sincerely,
