It is a granite sink on a heavy and thick granite slab. I originally had the sink sitting on the logs of the vanity stand but with the addition of the slab I needed to figure out how to hold up the sink for the drain connections. I noticed sink rings as a plumbing supply for basin sinks that apparently do this, but a small ring would not work with a large rectangular sink. So I ordered a stainless steel tray in a brass color to set the sink upon.
I cut a hole in the tray and it lets the sink sit up about 3/4″ above the granite.
I did not run across instructions to secure the sink to the vanity top after using a ring so I used a ring clamp on a rubber sleeve to keep the sink from lifting from the surface of the countertop.
With the sink installed I needed a box to mount the wall faucet. I saw the idea of building a box on another website. It was a bit difficult to figure out where to mount the faucet valve inside the box. I put in two cross pieces and then chose the lower one with the pipe about even with the valve. I realized that made the font too close to the sink. So I moved the valve up and changed the outlet pipe straight across from the faucet mixing pipe.
Then I used the hand sander to sand all the surfaces with four different grid sandpapers. I applied two coats of Waterlox and let them dry and the box was fitted behind the sink.
I want to use pine logs as trim in the house and I started with this box. The faucet is mounted at the right height over the sink. The valve is a little too low because it does not clear the sink rim but it can be shut off in either the hot or cold positions so I’m leaving it for now.
