Undermount stainless sink to undermount apron front...

I put in a farmhouse sink for my mother this year. really pretty easy. I also changed out the sink at our house and was easy as well. take your time and reread the instructions and you should be good.




I'm not too concerned about it. Cutting, shaping and polishing the granite is what makes me nervous.

Brace the granite with blocking, the cabinet front will not give enough support to cut and reshape in place.




There's 5/8" ply decking that's cut back just beyond the existing sink. It should have enough support while I cut, shape and polish. Then I'll cut the ply back for the new sink.

I updated some placeholders above with the progress. I used my new Flexvolt grinder to do ALL the cutting and I have to say that thing has every bit of the power of a corded grinder. Cut everything in one battery and switched the same battery over to my OMT to cut the cabinet face and undercut the decking.

Sounds like that grinder powered through like a champ.

I put in a farmhouse sink when we remodeled our kitchen last year. It was actually easier than I expected (they are some heavy SOB's though), and it looks awesome. That being said, we ripped up the countertops and had new ones installed as well, so I didn't have to worry about the cutting/shaping/polishing, which is the hardest part I'd assume.

Let us know how it turns out!

It did for sure! I even through on a 7" segmented wheel for a few cuts that I needed some depth for. You pull that trigger and it can get squirrelly on you. Definitely hold it off your work and let it get up to speed before cutting or grinding.
