How to Cut & Polish Granite Countertop Undermount Sink Video
This is part of a 28 minute video on how to fabricate granite undermount kitchen sink for Do-It-Yourselfers. The project was to replace a top mount granite kitchen sink with an undermount granite kitchen sink. We took a piece of matching "pre-fabbed" granite slab (by pre-fabbed we mean the edge has been pre-fabricated), cut the sink hole and polished the entire sink edges.
In the full 28 minute video, Buren Smith, our 25-year veteran stone fabricator, demonstrates the following skills and techniques:
1. Templating; 2. Using variable speed angle grinder; 3. Straight cutting with grinder and turbo blade; 4. Curved cutting with contour blade; 5. Smoothing curve cuts with drum wheel; 6. Polishing undermount sink with dry polishing pads; 7. Drill a faucet hole with Sure-Guide and dry core bit.
This video demonstrates fabrication of a rectangular undermount sink. These skills and tools can also be applied to fabricating oval undermount sinks and vessel bowls.
