I’m getting ready to put the edging on the countertop/sink and install sink and I know I’ve watched the video on Larry’s site but can’t find it for the life of me right now! Do I put the edging around the inside of the sink hole before I put the sink on? Anyone know where that video is located?
The sink is installed below the plywood that your Formica is glued onto. Someone with more experience will have to tell you how to install it. I made a guess on the installation below. I can look at my pulled out kitchen from my Westerner and take some pictures from underneath later today. Hopefully that will show how to mount it.
The holes on each corner of your sink were used for short mounting screws. My guess is that they were screwed UPWARD from underneath through the mounting holes.
However, before installing the mounting screws from underneath, I believe you had to lay down some putty tape around the top perimeter of the sink. The screws would squish the putty tape just like it gets squished when you tighten the J-rail to the skin. This would seal your sink from leaks.
The aluminum trim/edging was then placed into the opening as you have pictured.
