Have any of you ever made one?
What do you use as a finish? Obviously boats have been made out of wood for centuries, but I believe they used fiberglass. Iím not thinking that would be a finish of choice to do on a kitchen sink.
Iím wondering if polyester would be strong enough and Iím guessing some type of two part glue would need to be used.
Tx ahead of time!
The short answer is do not do this. Ask any wooden boat owner and they will tell you about the constant maintenance.
There is a small shop near us that has made several wood sinks and wood counter in wet locations. Im with Tom that none of my customers would maintain them but if yours would this guy uses CPES on all of it. I think he is partial to Smiths but my guess is any of them would be about the best protection you could hope for and yes, he does all the assembly with epoxy.
There are several firms that make tubs and sinks everyday.
we've done it a couple of times. mostly for people with more money than sense, so i'm guessing these aren't used very hard. although, one was in a master bath, so more use that the others.
Pat - Do you like the pivot jig? That is nice compact one.
I think it could be huge, with a market developing for longer horizontal tubes.
That's brilliant Dave, it's the very type of thing I like about woodworking. It sure as hell is not building boxes.
