With it spinning in the press, I used a coarse sanding block to round the outside edges. Then unbolted it all and drilled the center hole out in the corian to 3/4" , or whatever size you need

Another very good idea, thanks.

You must be better equipped than me. My budget tools would not hold up to cutting corian. If you've been cutting tile and have some corian scrap laying around then I could see how that would work for you. I feel like I spent too much for my solution but I typically frequent my local hardware store for "bits n' bobs" so I earn loyalty coupons.

Ehhh, you'd be surprised...corian cuts and drills pretty easy. It smells like poison though. I also took a look through the plumbing aisle and others looking for something similar to stewmac's setup. As long as you found something to work is the only matter
