Save me time: which farmhouse sinks seat and do counter cut properly

Recommended Posts

I never do these except once and recall having to make a new CAD block for the symbol so it worked.

Gene.

 

I did one on the plan I am working on wand took a standard cab,removed the drawer and set the cab height to allow the sink to sit on top and did a custom counter top.

 

Hope this helps.Ken

I do the same as Ken.  Sink Symbols will cut counter tops but not the underlying cabinets.  You just have to think of them the same as you would a big gas cooktop.

Here's a one I put together, Please note I have an eased edge molding on the custom countertop.

Thanks!  I found the one I did three years ago, and recall what I got into doing it.

 

Using Sketchup, I modeled one of Kohler's SS apron sinks, imported it into Chief, and then used the Kohler top cutout template data to create the cutout polyline that's the part of the sink symbol's CAD block that does the cutout.

 

It was that exercise that taught me about how symbols that insert into cab tops cut counters.

 

Yours is great and does what mine does not, which is to ease the cutout's top edge.

 

For max reality when doing 3D renders, yours is best.

I've tried modelling myself the sink my wife wants for our new kitchen but it all wasn't what she wanted. Once she saw yours she said you did better... Anyway, you've given us an idea on what style we want our sink to be. We've decided on every single item in our kitchen except the sink :D My wife has found this https://www.thewindupspace.com/best-farmhouse-sink-reviews/ that helped us make a proper decision. I hope this sink will look good in our kitchen and also it will be properly used further.
