Corian is normally cut with a large and powerful router (like a porter cable speedmatic) and carbide router bits. Pattern bits can be used to clean up the edges, and a bearing chamfer bit can then be used to cut the chamfer.

Use only carbide tipped saws and router blades. Don't use reciprocating type saws. Saw from the back side to avoid chipping. You may find router bits at big box, but I doubt it. Check a tool supplier or where solid surface material is sold. They are not inexpensive.

You need the adhesive for Corian in the correct color. If you have that, lots of clamps. For joining two pieces, use scrap blocks of material and hot melt glue, then clamp that ot hold the pieces. Be careful of alignment. For edge build up, just clamps. Then clean up the joint with a router, or sand working up to fine Scotchbrite pads.

How about taking it to a countertop place and having them do it? Might be less expensive and potentially better looking result.
