The Sink and Rolling Pin

The funny rolling pin/decorative turning thing was removed from the chopping block. It turns out that was exactly what the customer was thinking. I did have to make a slight modification, turning the ends down to 1 1/2", and turning 2 extra because we were no longer cutting them directly in half.

In other news, I've spent the last 2 days fighting with a cast iron utility sink. I'm building a bare bones sink stand for it, and have had to make a lot of fittings and adjustments to get the sink to fit. Cutting weird parts out of the mitered top, even cutting out around half of the rear skirt in order to accommodate the plumbing.

Today it was up, with the sink fit in it, and almost ready to go. I'll touch it up, and send it off to be white washed, and get to work on the pair of bathroom vanities that will accompany it, which I finally got the final dimensions for.

Pictures later, if I can remember to tote along my camera to work.
