Products: Sinks: Block Sink Machining Process
We currently have 48"x20"x10" blocks one each of Mink Grey and Halia Gold (both are limestones), two of White Carrara (marble), one of Bianco Gioa (a marble similar to White Carrara), three of Pietra de Cardoso (schist), and two of Beluga Limestone available. We also have a piece of Jeusalem Gold (limestone) that is 20"x17"x10", and a piece of Beluga Limestone that is 48"x20"x5" (the other 5" of this block was used for two vanity sinks integrated into a master vanity countertop). These smaller blocks are ideal for vanity, bar or even prep sinks. Shown below are the machining process of both a 45"x20"x9½" White Carrara block vanity and a 36"x20"10" Pietra de Cardoso block sink (also known as a apron front, farmer's or farm style sink). We have also made sinks from layering slabs and machining the resulting block when block material is not available.
Need some inspiration? How about The Guitar Sink. No we haven't done one of these, but we could :)
