Does this exist and is it practical?

My brother and SIL are starting on a kitchen remodel where my brother will be building the cabinets as he's a custom cabinetmaker. My SIL is convinced she wants a 36" single bowl stainless sink, probably undermount and definitely not with square corners. Their current sink is 26" wide and 10" deep, so I'm sure she will want the depth again. My brother is also hoping to get 16-18 gauge.

I've looked online but cannot find anything that meets all their requirements so was hoping the great wisdom here on GW would have some suggestions.

Bates and Bates has a 33" and will do custom sizes. It is 12 gauge, I believe.

Should also be able to get something from Julien Sinks.

Was going to suggest Julien--we have one of their 0-radius 30" sinks and love it! It comes with its own SS drain/strainer basket, BTW (or it did when we purchased ours in 2006-07).

Dino Rachiele will make you any stainless sink you want.

I loved dealing with him - great guy.

Good luck,

A 33" sink is a standard size and will fit into a 36" base. A 36" sink is non standard and will need at least a 39" base, which is also non standard in many cabinet lines. Custom, while available, will about triple the costs over choosing standard sizes.

Well nh, it sounds like your brother can charge your SIL more for those non standard cabinets. hmmm that could be interesting :)
You are so lucky to have a cabinet maker in the family.
