? Wood for Cabinet to Hold Weight of Soapstone Sink?
I am having a sink cabinet made for a soapstone sink. What wood material would be the best material to use. The cabinet will be painted. Will pine work or is that too weak? I would think maple would be perfect. This sink will be heavy and then adding H20 will make it VERY heavy. I am thinking my sink may end up being about 10sf of SS, off the top of my head, including the backsplash and small counter sections. This ends up being 200lbs of weight just for the sink alone, without the H20. My cabinet dimentions will be 18" deep and about 36" wide.
Any opinions on this would be very helpful, thanks.
