build your own custom sink, or anything else you can't find

issue 32 spring 2011 of epoxyworks magazine has an article about building impossible to find parts for your boat, another thing they show is how to make your own custom size and shape sink. seems like TD's are just as individual as small boats especially if you add the home built ingredient.

another idea would be plexiglass formed over a mold in the oven, homebuilders of airplanes and model airplane builders use this, if you have a well regulated oven it isn't hard.
anybody done something like this?[/i]

I have a unique plan for my shower pan/toilet base combo. It is an odd shape since it must fit in a difficult spot in the frame of the trailer. Part drops down. I thought I could make a wood pan as I want it and bondo it so it is shaped to drain properly and then I am planning on lining it with a rubber membrane. At the base of the pan where your feet go I am going to try and lay a bed of neopreme adhesive caulk for the "mortor" and lay in some thin little glass tiles. they are very light weight for tiles and I have a small pan so it will not be very much of them. After the neoprene sets I will try to use some more as a "grout". Not sure how it will work but it certainly will hold water.

Very cool, I haven't started my build yet, but I can already think of two items I could build. 1) a sink 2) an insulated "closet" for my 3 gallon keg of homebrewed beer. Thanks for posting the link to the article :thumbsup:
