    Sweet.

    I'm thinking about building a wooden counter top (padauk) with a teak oil finish and a bowl style sink on top of it.

    Not sure if it will be annoying after a while having the sink on top of the counter.

    if you're builiding it that is pretty awesome. You should post pics of your progress; it'd be interesting to see the build throughout. Are you doing his and her sinks or a single sink counter?

    here's another that's cool as hell too, but prob ridiculously expensive:

    I don't like things that revel in their novelty, but that sink is pretty cool. There are all kinds of good stone and concrete sink designs.

    A lot of these bowl sinks may look pretty cool, but they are ridiculously impractical. You can wash your hands in them, but trying to do stuff like washing your face or brushing your teeth is just a recipe for disaster. We are considering something funky like that in our guest downstairs bathroom, but it's conventional sinks for us everywhere else. In fact, we are going to go decidedly lowbrow but practical with corian counters and integrated corian bowls upstairs - totally function over form [​IMG]

    I forgot to reply in whatever thread you first posted the place that you are redoing, but it it looks great.

    It's going to be special when you're done.

    Douglas, be careful with Corian sinks. Some neighbors and friends did that and they have some staining issues. We did cultured marble which has been terrific so far.

    Shallow sinks are generally better in the bathrooms meant for guests, as they're pretty annoying to use.

    Normal use they say. I think Corian just isn't very stain resistant.

    When it comes to modern bathroom sinks, this is what every home owner should know about it. Sinks are probably one of the mist important fixtures in our homes. We have console sinks, pedestal sinks, vanity sinks and wall mounted sinks. Sinks come in many different colors and shapes. Today, you can find bathroom sinks in any color with just about any design imprinted on it. There is no limit when it comes to sink design, but there is a limit when it comes to purchasing one for your new bathroom redesign. In many cases, the sink is the focal point of the bathroom and ties the entire room together.

    How the hell would a wooden sink work? Wouldn't have you have to constantly put sealer on it or something?

    The Janka rating of the wood has to be over 1100 to prevent deterioration.

    Here are some beautiful bathroom sinks from RogerSeller.

    Bought one last year and they are still a delight to see at home.
