I'm building a very tiny bathroom in my cabin and was having a lot of difficulty find a sink that was small enough and wasn't crazy expensive. So I found a nice rock on the property and pulled out my angle grinder. I did have to buy a couple of somewhat pricey bits. So my "free" sink isn't exactly free. Now I'm set up to make other things. I'm working on a couple of granite book ends now. The sink only took me a couple of hours. I sprayed it with some clear acrylic enamel. I think it turned out pretty nice. Can't wait to install it this weekend.

Nice! Got a photo of the bits you used?

Make a matching soap dish.

Here is a picture of the bits. I'm still waiting on some polishing pads in various grits. They are on the slow boat from China. The sink pics are just the rough grind. Once I clear coated it I thought it looked alright. Don't know if I'll ever get around to polishing it now. We'll see when the pads come in.

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone. I always get inspiration from everyone’s projects. I thought I’d return the favour.

I hope that I don't cause any of you guys too much work making sinks for your spouses.
