[pure-silver] Re: Building a darkroom sink

Mark,

Way overboard. My wonderful custom sink is regular plywood with a marine
seal (I'll go look at the can I kept so I could do this again). With the
waterproof sealant you won't be getting the plywood wet so regular plywood
works. The sealant seals the corners so no silicon.

The lid is a great idea - I have one on my sink.

Subject: [pure-silver] Building a darkroom sink

Well it looks like I am finally going to have space to build a custom
darkroom sink.  Will have to be built because of size and plumbing
considerations.

My first reaction is to build it with wood, seal the cracks with silicone
caulk and then fiberglass over it.  Paint would then be either an epoxy or a
boat paint.  Part of me say I might need marine plywood, but with the
fiberglass and paint .  Im also going to build a top to go over the top that
will fit in that make the sink serve as a table should the need arise.

If its practical wood would be the preferred material because I have far
more woodworking skills than anything else.  And yea I hate plumbing like
most people.

Who knows this maybe the the plumbing project Ive dreamed of all my life. 
Whats that?  Well hopefully one day before I die, I will start a plumbing
project, plan it out, make one trip to the hardware or plumbing store to get
everything I need, come home, put it all together and have everything go
together exactly as I planned it, with no leaks and no extra trips to the
store needed.  Will it happen?  I doubt it but its a nice dream.
