Decide on a Type of SinkThe first step is to decide which type of sink you would like. Some sinks are constructed into the countertop while others sit on the counter or various other surfaces. Still, many other sinks are set up with a different platform to support them.
As soon as you have actually chosen in between installing a sink inside your countertop, a vessel or a platform sink, you can either buy a ready-made sink mold or make one yourself. Making a sink mold is easy and also low-cost.
Materials Needed for Making A Sink Mold:
- Large square piece of plywood
- Four plywood boards
- Wood Saw
- Rubber tube
- Concrete mix
- Rubber gloves
- Protective glasses
Safety MeasuresWhenever you're taking on a project like this, you wish to ensure that you have the ideal security equipment as well as are working in the most productive situation. Because you will be cutting wood with a saw, make sure to wear protective gloves as well as eyewear. When pouring concrete, you need to wear rubber gloves, work clothes and use of a space like a garage or outdoor area where you won't damage anything or unintentionally spill concrete.
The first step is to measure the dimensions of the base of the sink in a large piece of plywood. Cut around your markings to make the base of the sink mold. Use a drill to make a hole for the drain. After that, take four plyboard boards as well as attach the sides of the mold with nails on all four sides.
Then make the internal frame of the mold by making a smaller sized mold with the same ratio but a little smaller than the outer mold. The area between two frames is where you will pour the concrete as well as from the size of the sink's walls. Make sure the inner frame has a drain hole too.
