Topic tags/keywords: epoxy

I’d like to carve a sink out of wood (instead of using typical stainless). Is there something I could coat the wood with to make water tight? I think I’d probably do the counter (same piece of wood) with the same coating so would be good if it’s food safe

was thinking an epoxy pour like this?

thanks for your thoughts

For something like a sink I would use boat builders epoxy, it will cost more.

Yes, do what bondo said. Also think about how to seal the drain plug especially if it is metal. PVC ones might be a better choice.
