Simple Play Kitchen Sink
Wood play kitchen furniture can be so expensive. Yet these minature cuties are so easy and fun to build. We have an entire collection of plans available online for play kitchens. This one was built by The Crafting Chicks. To see Grace's original Playhouse Kitchen sink, scroll down.
1 - 1x12 @ 8’
Metal pan or dish to use as the sink (I used a sink from a plastic kitchen handed down from my niece
In addition to general safety and building instructions, please note, you can build with either screws or glue on this one.

1. Begin Building the Box. Begin by attatching A to C as shown. The bottom of C will rest 1 1/2" from the bottom of C, leaving the exact amount of space for B, the toekick.
2. Finish the box. Finish attatching the boards as shown, leaving 1/4 inch overhand on the sides of the countertop.
3. Counter-Top. I recommend attaching the backslash to the counter-top first, then attaching the entire counter-top/backslash unit to the sink base as one. This will leave a 3/4 inch overhand on the front.
Here are some additional views. Note the front of sink is put in.
Back. Attach the plywood to the back of the sink base. Take a diagonal to square up the sink before attaching
Sink. Decide what you will be using for a sink. Then cut the hole to fit the sink. I used a sink I took off a junk hand-me-down kitchen from my niece. You could also use a metal pan or even a plastic tupperware. Just make sure there is a lip to keep the sink in place. You could even just add a third shelf to box in the sink.
