I'd love to do a corian countertop but I don't know how to cut it properly. I have a drill, sabre saw, table saw, but I'd hate to ruin it. I think it'd make a great table top, too.

I found chenille for half what my fabric store charges on fabric.com.

Suzanne,
Corian is fairly straight forward to work with. It can be cut and routered with a carbon tipped blade. It isn't a structual material and would need to have plywood laminated to it for the table /bed.
It is HEAVY. Beyond adding a lot of weight to the trailer, it would be cumbersome to raise and lower the dinnette.
Best deals on Corian can be found at your local counter top installer. They usually end up with a huge bin of cut-offs, some as large as 3'x5'. The price is usually a quarter of the original.
Dave.

Would a smaller--mosaic-like tile get all cracked in a travel trailer (or just even the grout)? I'm good at tiling stationary kitchens...but this cracking concern is why I thought of corian. Maybe just for the counter, but wouldn't it be pretty to match it up to the table? Is there a thinner material you can think of? I saw some hammered copper countertops that were nice, but I bet pricey. Anything I used would just needs to cover the existing counter or table top.
