    Nice job! I'm getting ready to make one of these. I never thought about using a container for the bottom!
    Did you line the inside with plastic?

    I need to convert my basement sink, but the matter of permanent living situations is what's holding me back...

    yeah, I couldn't find a cheap thing to use as the basin, so I started looking around the store and decided to buy a storage tub. now I wish I'd bought a deeper one, but whatever.

    I lined the thing with a shower curtain because it was nowhere near plumb or water tight...

    and yeah, that's a 5 gallon bucket.

    I'm very interested to see how much water I use on a typical poster job.

    *edit - I painted it with some waterproof deck paint the guy said would work great. Having built it and knowing what a shit job I did, I expect to have to build a new one in the spring, but it should get me through the winter.
