I don’t think I’ve ever had more requests for a video than for this one. People have been seeing our induction cooktop and deeper sink in the background of other videos and then wanting to know how I did it. Well… now you’ll know.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t in the biggest rush to put this video together because the project wasn’t exactly easy. I just didn’t believe that many people would be into laminating their own countertops and getting them CNC cut. But who knows? You all might just surprise me!
In broad strokes, the basic steps I go through in this video are:
- Tearout of existing galley
- Removal of propane line from inside and patching and plugging the propane openings and connections
- Laminating a new countertop (twice!)
- CNC routing of the countertop to match previous counter exactly
- Install and trim work of counter
- Upgrade electrical for induction install (partially completed during 20k project)
- Install new sink
- Install new drain piping
- Install new faucets
- Build and install new drawers
- Install induction cooktop
- General cleanup of wires, pipes, etc.
There are probably some steps I left out, but that’s mostly it. Below you’ll find a few links to the products I installed. (These are affiliate links.)
- The Induction cooktop I installed is the single burner model from True Induction.
- This is the sink I installed.
- And the faucet we wound up going with is this one.
- This is the Fernco Flexible Trap you see in the video (although, you can just get it from a home center).
Random note… this is the second time I’ve installed that same model induction cooktop. The first was in Lance!
After a super long video like that, I’m not sure what questions people will have, but if you saw a tool or technique or product you’d like to know more about, ask me a question below in the comments and I’ll do my best to get you an answer.
