Well if you read the first part of the series on the concrete sink project you know know that I had just poured a slab base for my cabinet to put a concrete sink in.
This is my first attempt at making a concrete sink and I am blogging about it in parts.
In this post I wanted to post several pictures of the cabinet as it is now completed. Also the sink will take the shape of a guitar. I worked on the guitar mold for quite some time now and tonight I completed it.
The cabinet was a simple build with 2×4’s and later I put older would on the facing of it so that it looked rustic.
The guitar mold was fashioned out of the pink 2 inch thick foam from Home Depot. I used 3 layers of it glued together. I then sanded it slightly and coated it with plaster in 2 coats then sanded it down to a fine finish and coated with a two part epoxy. The epoxy should allow me to reuse the mold on future guitar sinks later on.
Quick little funny, tonight as I was looking at the mold and marveling at the glossiness of it and daydreaming about how the sink would look, I noticed that the 2×4 boards I was using to keep it off the work bench was now glued to my mold. WHAT WAS I THINKING !!!!!???!!!
I quickly reacted and tried hard to get the boards a loose from the mold trying desperately not to destroy my hard work.
I succeeded with minimal damage and learned a valuable lesson. I think I can fix the rough edge I made. Everything should be ok.
Here are some pics of the cabinet base.
Here is a small video of the concrete sink mold getting fabricated.
Stay tuned for the next installment Concrete Sink Project Part Three
