As long as the counter is big enough Corian is one of the easier ones to work with. Since it does not have the ground or crushed stone that some of the other material have you can work with normal woodworking tools. A saw with a fine tooth carbide blade and a professional grade router with the proper shaped carbde bit can be used if the edge needs finishing. A belt sander helps on cuts also. The only problem you might have is if you need the joint kits for seaming as I dont think you can buy them.

When Corian first came out I could buy the slabs and fabricate my own tops and then Dupont went to a certified distributor system and would no longer sell to those of us that had been working with it for years. I will admit that they did have reasons for this as not all that were working with the product were doing it right.

Ad prior comment said - yes, can be done. DuPont discontinued the joining kits some time ago because Corian is considered passe, but there are other products out there specifically designed for this purpose, though from what I hear they are not as perfect a color match as the DuPont product. I have not done a Corian countertop for decades, so cannot give a recommended adhesive brand.
