Build your bottom at an angle. Don't use big ugly blobs of caulk and it will look fine. Run your caulk then use a spoon to finish.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but luckily we have a Cresco right up the road from us. These are nice stainless steel units. Not the cheapest, but for what you get they have pretty good prices.

Default One word...rubbermaid

I use one of those giant rubbermaid 40+ gallon totes on the counter right next to my utility sink. Cut a hole in the end for a drain hose, and voila...huge ass cheapo sink.

For the spigot/sprayer I use a 6' length of garden hose with a shutoff valve nozzle on the end attached to my utility sink faucet.

In addition, I put a brass y adapter with shutoffs and garden hose disconnects on the utility sink faucet, so I can use the spigot in the sink without removing the garden hose.

I also highly recommend putting your brass jet bottle washer on a quick disconnect, super quick and easy changeovers.

I bought my large sink from a restaurant supply store. It's a single however, not a double (don't have room for a double).

They are expensive however compared to a regular plastic laundry sink. Expect to pay at least $400-500+ for a new one. The prewash arm is not included either.



The arm is most certainly the best part. Make kettle cleaning very easy.

Check to see if you have a Habitat for humanity "restore". Also, metal recyclers. Posting a WTB on CL brings in all kinds of nutso stuff.

Picked this up off Craigslist yesterday for $250. I shopped CL from two weeks and the pickins were pretty good.

Nice job! $250 is a screaming deal for a double sink with a side counter. I'm impressed!

Looks to be in good shape too.
