Six Inch Cheese Dome Scroll Saw Pattern.

This project requires a 6 inch glass dome. Sources are available for the dome in the pattern. Prices range from $8 to $13 for the dome depending on where you buy it. I found mine at the local Woodcraft store in the woodturners section. Woodcraft does not appear to carry the dome online. There is an online source available here. Their 6 inch dome is $8 plus shipping.

The plate in this project is cut from Corian. Make sure you use the correct blades when cutting the Corian. The Flying Dutchman #7 Polar blade works fine. It's also helpful to have some micro sanding pads but any 220 grit sand paper will give you pretty good results on the Corian if you need to sand the edges. Mine required very little sanding.

I attached the plate to the wood with two part epoxy.

If you have never cut Corian before you will be surprised how well it cuts with the right blade. Finding Corian can sometimes be difficult. Some sources are Ebay, and your local counter top installers. They often have scraps left over that they throw out. I also know a woodworker in Tennessee that might be a source but I'm not sure of the price yet.

Corian is food safe a reasonably durable. It can be cleaned with ordinary dish washing detergent. It is now porous so it does not hold odors.
