This is the nicest sink I’ve restored. Before and after pics. I made sure the whole thing was clean and then brought to 200+ grit then sealed with black silicone the with oil, My own 100 year old refinished all brass drain too. This is high-end Alberene stone. Yes, it’s the sink below in the blog under “Ooh what will this look like”? covered in lead paint etc. Thanks. Eric, 508 826 9981.

Finally…my own soapstone sink!
There’s a saying in Spanish that I really like that my neighbor from Ecuador told me one day as he watched me work: “Casa de herrero, cuchillo de palo.” He knew that I still hadn’t taken the time to put in my own sink. “House of blacksmith knife of wood.” The sink is 32 1/2 X 19 and is 7 inches deep. I put it in the existing cabinetry It’s made of about 11 pieces of scrap. I chose to put the drain in the back right so we had more room in the sink. Shown at various stages, with and without oil.
