Under Mount Sink


I'm building a 48 inch bathroom vanity out of some tiger maple. The top will be tiger maple too. I've ordered an oval under-mount sink from the supply house. I've never installed one before but it doesn't appear to be that complicated a deal. I'd like the top to be 5/4 once it is thickness planed and cleaned up. Is that too thick for an under-mount or will I be okay? Thanks

Re: Under Mount Sink


Different undermounts use different clips/rails and mounting systems.... but I can't think of any system where your counter DEPTH/THICKNESS would make a difference.... unless you had strange clearance issues.

Check your undermount system.

Re: Under Mount Sink


We made a wood 48" bathroom vanity top several years ago
with 8/4 QS white oak.
We re-used our old sink (a hex sink) cause I liked the sink
and also wanted a big sink.
The iunder mount sink is going to look great with the wood top.
We did have to refinish it once as the part under the soap dish
got stained. We had to take it apart, bring it outside and sand it down.

You have to be careful with water splashes etc...

With the undermount sink you can sand it down on site and refinish it if necessary.
