Flush Mounting a Kitchen Sink in a Solid Wooden Walnut Worktop?

Postby proftanda » Sat Oct 03, 2015 4:35 pm

Hi there,

I'm planning to replace my kitchen counters with a solid walnut (staves) worktop and a new sink

I like the look of flush-mounted sinks and the worktop seller says they can CNC the hole to fit a sink this way but I wasn't sure if this is a good idea?

Given the fine tolerance for the edge with flush-mounting could this cause problems down the road if the wood warps or expands through moisture?

Or am I worrying too much?

Any help or experiences welcome!

Thanks in advance
