These have all been nicely done. I love the leaded glass doors.

Nice, strong counter top. This is what I wanted for the cottage. I wasn`t thinking of a wooden sink, but I am now. How many coats of epoxy do you use?

They all look great. Good luck on the sink! It is beautiful, but the expansion and contraction of the wood will make keeping a surface coating on it very difficult. Sealing up the underside should greatly reduce it, though. Watch it like a hawk for cracks in the finish and seal them up before water gets in them.
I really like your entertainment center.

LOL, half the point of epoxy coating is to freeze the movement. Yes, all of my work gets underside coatings. This sink has 3 coats of epoxy; every surface. BTW, even though epoxy completely seals moisture in and out, if for some extreme tempature reason the wood happens to move some, epoxy moves with it without failing. Boat builders plan and build for the most extreme environment, and they depend on epoxy.

They’ve all said it but I second their opinions.

LOL – How many times have we been told ’ wood can’t be used for a counter top let alone a sink ’ , well Cap. I think we have proved them all wrong. I did my first sink about 15 years ago and it has never cracked or leaked, it’s all in selecting the right wood and sealing it right, comon sence.
Anyway, Thanks for helping me proove them wrong and YOU done a great job on ALL your works.
