I went to a Zerolandfill event this year and I grouts witnessed several pieces of solid countertops samples but now I don't know what to do with them, any ideas?

  • If they are like Corian tops. Cut them to cutting board sizes, use a router and round the edges off, then cut a small U shape grove round the edges about 1/2" in and sell or give them away as cutting boards for the holidays!

    Are they big enough to use on top of a kitchen island or kitchen trolley? Maybe use the pieces together for this if they are smaller pieces. Could create a one of a kind piece? If they are large enough they might work for a vanity in the en-suite or bathroom? They could also make a good pastry board or cheese board for smaller pieces. Or use to top small tables for use on a deck or garden. How about using to top an old sewing table - the ones with the wrought iron legs such as Singer used to make many years ago. These are in demand now and many just need a nice top. I have seen these made over with marble tops but Corian type tops would look just as good? If they are very small pieces use them as tiles/mosaics and stick them to a backing board such as MDF or plyboard. You could use strong glue from hard ware store to stick the pieces down.

    Thank you so much for your ideas! They are small rectangle pieces, solid n a little heavy. I have them in all different colors
  • When you say small, how small, size? If they are pretty much the same thickness and the same type of material, not color, then can be glued using a special glue to make a larger piece for something special. Glue is a bit expensive, but so is this material.
