After 27 years the plastic shop sink developed a leak. Not something I wanted to repair and it looks terrible inside anyway. So I removed the old cabinet / sink. Wondering what was I thinking when I built it. I used a hollow core door for the one side??? Really? Not much was proofed against water, yeah and 27 years showed me the error of that idea. Fixture once cleaned up was still good, so we can keep that. Had another sink I got from somewhere for free, it will do. Unlike the other sink this one has no lip over so I had to build the cabinet close to the size and stand off about 1/16 inch all around to account for the sink not being exact square in shape. Figures. Someone threw away a truck toolbox top at work. Cut it down to size and squared it up. The diamond plate makes a nice back splash and not much will bother it in the way of chemiclas. Since I am in this corner I opened up the wall an got started on working my way down the entire length of the shop replacing the pegboard with OSB. Adding some electrical outlets as I go. For the moment I am only coming out about 4 feet. Just enough to get the sink done and the shop back in working order. So I got started here: old sink and the newish sink Moved on and closed up the wall once I added a stud close to the corner, reducing the distance between studs to 16 inchs. Whole shop is 24 inches, I didn't build it but I will fix it. Got it prepped for paint. At the bottom I added a u channel of flashing to protect the OSB from mositure. Also caulked the bottom of the OSB, just to make sure. Used oil based primer to seal the wall up. Then a couple coats of latex from the closet for the deck. Have plenty so I am using it up. Dry fitted the diamond plate and put insulation on the plumbing. So after a weeks worth of work this is where I am so far.
