Install a built-in resin sink

In all kitchens, the sink is now embedded in the worktop. This requires a cut as accurate as possible in it. If the cut is too big, the sink will risk moving; too small it will not pass or risk splitting if you force to put it in place. It is therefore the most delicate operation, which must be carried out with the utmost care.
