Sink Cabinet With Farm Sink


My clients have finally got me started on their kitchen. I did the Island with the Bubinga top which is a kitchen all by itself. Now it's time to get the rest done.

They picked a furniture style cabinet for the sink. They picked out a farm sink, bought it and had it shipped in from England. Darn thing weighs 150 lbs. 10" tall, 36" wide and 18" deep, the perimeter is about 1 1/8" thick.

Here is what I'm copying.


I made the faceframe and fit the sink to that before I built the cabinet. I made the drawer fronts and the 2 doors.


Detail of the drawer front. Same panel is in the door.


Since the cabinet is 26" deep it sticks out from the rest of the cabinets. I wanted to keep the inside of the cabinet Maple I inlayed a pc of 1/4" thick Oak into the front edge of the plywood I was using for the side.


The cabinet is now put together, I've sprayed the inside. I need to get the stain on, distress it and clear coat it. No pic of the cabinet yet.

I got to use the new Dovetail Machine again. Made the parts for the 3 drawers that will go on the right side of the cabinet. The left side will have a full height pull out that will have 2 stainless steel utensil cups and 2 knife holders. Underneath that will be storage for smaller items.

Re: Sink Cabinet With Farm Sink


The look they chose was different from the picture. I started making a sample and it went the wrong way. It was because I used Oak and I was using a glaze. It filled in the grain. I changed over to Steamed Beech and it only took the glaze in the distressed areas. For the heck of it I showed them both samples and they chose the Oak.

So the grain is going to get filled in with the glaze along with a few nail and dent marks. So the end result will look different from the picture they chose. I'm still deciding if I want to use the older hardware on the unit or not. The rest of the kitchen will have soft close hinges, the pic shows barrel hinges and some sort of a latch. I'm leaning towards using the mortise hinges and latch over the soft close and no latch.

I'll ask them eventually. The holiday weekend is going to slow things down a bit.

Re: Sink Cabinet With Farm Sink


Is that sink an overlap front or a full depth front where you have to sand and file for a perfect fit. I have only done the full depth front ones and I get very nervous every time I do it.

Full depth front. I've already fitted the sink. The drain hole has to go on the left because the backside of the sink is a 1/4" wider.

When I get to do them everything is already finished makes it a little stressful especially if cabinets are painted

Re: Sink Cabinet With Farm Sink


Well, I could have done it that way, but since moving the FF around and leaving the sink on the floor is easier......

I can imagine that would be pretty stressful, trying to scribe it in. And then having someone ask why is it taking so long...

Nice work. Looks like a fun project. I hope you leave enough room for the plumber to do the hook-ups, lol.

Just make sure the plumber gets a strainer basket that is long enough

Sink was bought from England and shipped in. Same thing for the sink in the Bubinga slab.

Thats what she said

Buying stuff from that euro trash worries me they have some strange ideas on things.

You would think you could source a sink here in the USA

I wonder why its called a farm sink ?, the style looks more like a lab/workshop sink to me.

Re: Sink Cabinet With Farm Sink


In my general knowledge they call anything a farm sink that sticks out past the cabinet.
