8.3 Center the Sink Opening Cutout side-to-side over the center line of the sink cabinet. Use the template provided by the sink manufacturer or specific cutout dimen- sions supplied in the plans. Make sure the cutout is parallel to the front of the countertop and set back far enough so the front of the cutout will be farther back than the backside of the sink cabinet front by 1/4”. 8.4 Cut the sink opening straight sides first. Use a circular saw with a sharp blade to plunge into the cut. Enter the material slowly to mini- mize the chance of blowout to the surface. 8.5 Place screws diagonally into the kerf centered in each side cutout before proceed- ing with th e rounded corners. This will keep the cutout section from tearing away as the cor- ner cuts are completed. 121 Cut the rounded corners of the sink cutout with a jig saw. Be ready for surprises when the cutout is com- pleted. The diagonal screws should keep the sink cutout piece from falling, but it still may shift or swing. ©2017 PCS Professional Cabinet Solutions.
