Well, It’s Official. We Have Now Covered It All. A Woody Kitchen Sink?
I am not sure what to write about anymore. Today we are done. Everything from here on in is just more of the same with no real hope to ever find anything new. You have the good folks at Marine Service Unlimited for that by the way. Here is a fun note from Tim Likasavitz
We have a customer that loves the ‘ol woodies and wanted to incorporate “something” into their basement/bar remodel project. They contrast iron and wood throughout their whole project. Because of this they came to us asking if we could design and build “something” that would blend into this iron-wood theme. As you can see by the pics we designed and built a mahogany sink with ebony inlays.
The sink looked so well with everything they decided to make it the center piece of the bar. Instead of having the sink under the counter top and hidden to guests, they brought the sink up into the counter top. Their project turned out great and the sink is a main focal point. They also bought one of our previously made serving trays with the Century name on it. This too is on display in their bar. So Dave and Scott at Marine Services Unlimited are incorporating their woodworking skills for more that just boats. They previously had their ’65 Century Resorter fully restored by us.

Do you have to swell the sink before using it?
5200 on it autta cover it
And you get sink caulking irons where?
It took me a minute to get the Century reference. Like a Century the water keeps filling the sink, it doesn’t keep it out. Ah.
I was going to say it is Ironic that there was a reference to Century in a story about “SINK”.
No 5200??…No barrier coat???..can’t possibly hold water.
To go with the sink.
If you soak in it, does your bottom swell up? Do you have to wear a life jacket in the tub? Every time you fill it up does a bilge pump drain it? If you own it in Canada do you have to hang one of those dumb red fenders on it?
My cousin who is a Finish Carpenter by trade, built a beautiful Knotty Pine Shower for my Aunt. It’s been in use for about 2 yrs. now and is doing just fine. He used Deft Bartop finish.
Dave and Scott do very nice work. Here is the boat that goes with the sink and tray.
How about clamping a classic outboard motor to the stern of the tub Bob Matson shows above? Then it would be complete!
If you put the outboard on the INSIDE of the tub, you have got yourself a HOT TUB!!
Greg I ll second that. I’ve had wood boat work by the father and son tea. They do real nice work for a reasonable price. I would go back if I needed more work done.

looks like a mini-horse trough to me……

I love the sink. I have plans to redo our kitchen someday, that will be on my wish list…
Matt might have blogged about everything including the wooden sink. But it ain’t over until the fat wooden lady sinks.
Well..[that word’s a pun]
Unlike some wooden boats, this thing wooden’ sink.
I have a sinking feeling the customer sank a lot of money into that sink, resulting in sunk costs.
There. All three tenses, well-synced.
