With no experience I built a sailing Dory from lapstrake planking and sent her out over Tybe Island without sinking, so I am sure you can run a bit of water over a sink without causing much damage...
    Different strokes for different folks. Some people like to build things and put more effort into it and some don't. One approach is not right or wrong.

    That's perfect.....I just finished the sink stand today, built in two 4 foot sections. Still have to install plywood on the bottom framing for storage, remove some old wall paper and will be painting those old "Pepto Bismol" (spelling?) colored walls to an off white soon---it's progressing. Thanks for the tip on those levelers,---wander if Lowe's or Home Depot carries them, will check tomorrow. Although I think some shims would probably do the trick for me.

    Marine ply with epoxy resin, now twenty years old and not showing signs of needing to be recoated, which I had planned to do every 5 years or so

    My new 48 inch wide large print troughs are construction ply with marine sealant and seem to be working well

    What I really need is a new shed to put the darkroom in, but I also want a new 4WD to get my gear around in - On account of the fact I have just blown the head gasket on my Volvo 240GL - I wish a coat of epoxy resin around the rocker cover would fix that as well

    I believe Lowe's has them. You have to get T-nuts also if you use these.

    I did a similar process for the drain as you did however I used a router. Just use some plumbers putty to seat the drain.

    Yours is looking good and yes you need to change the color of that wall

    Finished the stand and got the sink moved into the room. I'll be installing the drain on the right side, have most that have a plywood sink installed the drain in a corner of the sink? Seems I remember seeing some that have put it in the middle at the end of the sink.

    Back corners for mine. My sinks are mirror images of each other so the two drains are next to each other. Makes the plumbing easier.
