Mortice method

Before you start fixing the sink, you need to make the appropriate template. Although it is attached to many modern models. In case of absence, use the sink itself, drawing it on the cardboard. In the nightstand you need to cut out a hole that will match the washing parameters. To do this, put the template on the intended site and fix it with adhesive tape. After that, you need to circle him with a pencil on the table top. Then a retreat is made to the side at 1.5 cm and a contour is drawn for work.

The hole is cut with an electric jig saw. But first you need to make a small hole for the jig saw. The drill can be taken by 10 mm.

Before you can work with a jig saw, you need to paste a paint tape around the contour, this will protect the rest of the cabinet from cracks.

This will protect against moisture, hence from swelling and mold. After full drying, you can preliminarily try on the sink.

Now you can insert a sink in the hole and make fasteners, that is, pull first the diagonal angles, and then the middle. The excess parts of the tape must be cut with a stationery knife.
