In progress, mud room work sink, almost done. A low budget project indeed, but came out pretty nice, stoutly built, mortise and tenon joints, yellow pine and doug fir, travertine on plywood top, edge detail will be wood strips and small bull nose tile pieces. It will be installed on a pedestal level about 4 inches above the floor, also covered with matching travertine. A dog food feeding and watering station will be located next to it, and cabinets above. Corbeled sink came as a response to my desire to hold to an arbitrary 18 inch counter depth. With the sink sticking out like that, it created challenges to support it from underneath, so I figgered out the two sides with the corbeling effect, and notched them into the bottom rail. Slanted front panel made from beadboard scraps in my shop. I should be installing soon. Where’s my plumber!!
