  1. Wood saw is the easiest way to cut pvc. Farm sinks are popular, but Im not sure how people wash dishes without 2 bays. Also if you need to fill the sink for washing thats alot of water when it should be half that with 2 bays.

  2. Thats exactly what we did for our renovation!! It was so easy to install and the butcher block has been pretty low maintenance! See it on IG @restoration1926

  3. Thanks for doing these videos….I really enjoy them! My question is…..I think i would prefer the counter top to not set on top of the sink….is there another way of installing this sink so the counter top is not on top? thanks

  4. Do what the gentleman in the video did even if buying new cabinets. We paid roughly $200 extra for the “farmhouse sink base cabinet” and it still needs to be cut up and a base built to fit and support the farmhouse sink. Would have been cheaper to buy the regular base cabinet and cut it up the same.

  5. You don't need to replace/remove the top to install this sink. Tap the cabinet front off, cut the top rail off, set the sink on a Pete's Sink Mount (wood shrinks, don't use it please), slide the front behind the apron, silicone the flange, and dial the Pete's to push the sink flange to the bottom of the top. I've done this hundreds of times.
