DIY Outdoor Sink Project Directions: 1. Drill hole for faucet
Drill a hole in one bathtub near the back edge. Push the faucet through from the front and apply thread tape to all the threaded ends. Twist the elbow tube onto the back of the faucet.
2. Make garden hose attachment
Apply thread videotape to the threaded objective of the straight pipe and spin that onto the other end of the elbow. Attach the garden hose adapter to the bottom aim of the straight pipe. Stiffen all connections with a wrench.
3. Hose adapter
Attach a garden hose to the hose adapter.
4. Create the lid
To generate the eyelid, cut the deck boards 1 inch longer than the tub’s thicknes, so the lid will overhang the tub opening. Cut enough committees to cover the top. Cut two lengths of the 2-by- 2 committee 1 inch shorter than the opening, to fit inside and prevent the top from sliding off.
5. Attach the lid
Line up the longer committees edge to edge. Center the shorter boards perpendicular on the longer committees, leaving a space between them. Screw the shorter boards onto the deck boards. Flip the top and place it over one of the tubs. Voila! You now have an outdoor sink!
