I'll cut down a beefy Boos maple countertop (1.75" thick!) to fit the available space (26" wide x 16" deep.) A Chicago Faucets spigot will deliver water to the 12" stainless sink. I'm using a foot-pedal valve to turn the water on & off. I'm not a major germ-a-phobe (seriously), but it's always bugged me to turn on water with dirty hands, wash your hands, then turn off the water by touching the dirty handle.
