I am remodeling my kitchen. We will be installing granite countertops and a
Kohler Executive Chef cast iron *undermount*
sink, which weighs 144 pounds.
The granite guys say they usually drill holes in the underside of the
granite for anchors to hold an undermount sink.
The granite guys suggested that their anchors would not be strong enough to
hang a cast iron 144 pound sink. They said they could install a couple of
2x4's to hold up the sink.
We are having the cabinets custom made by a skilled cabinet-maker.
What suggestions do you have for supporting the weight of a cast iron
undermount sink with a granite countertop?
I don't want something ugly, like 2x4's, in the under-sink cabinet.
By the way, an email copy of your response would be appreciated, in addition
to posting here to the group.
