I'm investigating something different to use for nut and bridge material. I generally use bone for the nuts and ebony for the bridges on my hardwood dulcimers. I have seen micarta available for nut material. I came across some corian today and was wondering if anyone has used this. It seems to machine easily and has a texture similar to bone. I'm going to experiment with some tomorrow, but I was curious if anyone has used it before.
