Did you ever think you might want a wood sink, that is a wooden sink in your bathroom or kitchen? Wooden sinks seem to be the rage these days and as wood turners, if you have a big enough lathe you can make your own wood sink!
Most wood sinks will set on top of a vanity, although with a little bit of thought and engineering you could drop them in a top by simply turning an edge on the top of the sink that would hold it up.
Simon from SG Art Turning does an excellent job at turning a sink from a big piece of maple, it was somewhat spalted and as usual you never know what a piece of wood is going to look like until you open it up. This one was beautiful
Simon takes you from turning this piece of wood to finishing and installing a pop up drain …..ready for a sink. He is using a Laguna 18|36 Wood Lathe and is waiting for his new Laguna Revo 24|36 Lathe ….and I can say I am jealous and coveting my neighbor because that is one awesome lathe, they both are but he will be able to turn 24″ projects with ease on the new Laguna Lathe!
