    I have a sink like that; was purchased with the manufactured supplied stand. The stand supports the sink by the lip, which is fine as long as the max load is trays. I would not put a print washer in the sink unless the bottom is supported. Mine was set up with the washer (Kostiner) on a stand next to the sink (and higher so that drainage into the sink was not an issue). I built the washer stand from 2X4's, with an epoxy painted plywood top and shelves underneath to provide bracing and space for supplies.

    Here's the progress so far. I used 2x4's for the legs and 1x4 stock for the framing--all attached with 1/4" bolts. I need to complete the bottom framing and add some bracing on the top plywood sheet to prevent the sink from shifting around. Then I'll add storage space for trays on one side and drying screens on the other side. Scott (The Flying Camera) stopped by to chat and help and probably prevented me from making a few mistakes. I hope to be finish tomorrow night and start in on the plumbing next.

    Barry, here are a couple of pictures of my sink base for the same sink. The sink is supported by the recessed edge along its perimeter, which is plenty strong enough to support it. In one picture I propped the sink up with a tape measure so you can see the underlying plywood, which is supported by a 2x4 frame. If I did it over I would build in shelves and tray racks underneath. In the sink is a sheet of plexiglass because I didn't care for the large ridges built into the sink.

    I will email you several more detailed pictures.

    More progress on the sink stand. I painted it tonight, although I'm still going to add some drying screen storage. The long 2x6 supports the front lip and there are also supports at the rear of the sink.

    I looks like you did an excellent job designing and building the stand, congratulations. I hope you enjoy many years of use and make some great prints.

    Thanks Curt! I've never had anything more than a utility sink, so I'm looking forward to using it.

    Scott-- Not yet. I'm going to give it a second coat Thursday night and move it in Saturday morning. I think we may need to pop the door off the hinges--it's going to be close.

    If you can take the bottom shelf/bracing off, I think we can get it in without too much trouble.
