Presenter

Belinda Worden

Overview

Often thought of as a “benchtop material” the design capabilities of Solid Surface are much greater. This presentation will educate on the scope of design possibilities while also addressing the fundamentals for more standard joinery applications. It will provide an understanding of the benefits of Solid Surface and how it can be incorporated across a much larger scope of project design for a multitude of commercial and residential applications.
