Started a new project for SWMBO last week. We have a laundry/Bath
room on the first floor and it had a little powder room sink in it.
Since the Mrs is getting a little tired of me using her sink every
time I come in covered in grease, oil, dust, dirt, or some other
foreign substance I thought I'd build a cabinet and install a "real"
sink in the back bathroom. It will also be nice for her to use when
The cabinet is 48" x 25" with a 49" counter top, double stainless deep
bowl sink and a Peerless faucet. I've been gathering supplies since
last July. Everything but the plumbing items (feeds, drains) were
gotten at a surplus auction. I spent more on the plumbing stuff (feed
lines, strainers, and waste lines) than I did on the rest of the
This link shows the construction process.
I'll be making simple raised panel doors for it directly.
I used 3/4" MDF board for the sides and sealed it with spray primer.
The only thing left (besides the doors and drawer fronts) is to hook
up the drain.
Got it together over the course of a weekend.
I have some left over counter top and am considering using it to make
a router table top. Any one ever done something like that? My
thought is to take off the back splash, cut in a hole for a lexan
plate for the router to be attached to and then router in channels for
T track for the fence. Any suggestions or thoughts on that?
SWMBO is thrilled with it so life is good... until she thinks about
the next honey do item. ;-)
