My wife likes things that look old or are from a past era. She found a picture of a dry sink and asked if I could make one. I had some pretty walnut and this is the result. I had no plans, only a picture from a magazine. Much easier with plans!!

Nice looking dry sink. My folks still have an old one down in their basement. They think it is from the early 1900s, if not older. If I remember correctly, thiers has a copper lining on the top.

Nice build, very good looking. The walnut is really eye catching.
Thanks for showing.

Nice dry sink. Owners of the originals would have been envious of the walnut.

I would have used scrap pine or pallet wood for that, stained it, and saved the walnut for finer stuff… but that’s just me. I guess your significant other loves it anyway :)
