recently before a large pizza perty with over 75 guests i was faced with the dilema of shaking all the guests hands and trying to stay clean to make 50 pizzas . i was able to score a cheap bathroom sink and to my delight on my way home my neighbor was hauling a burnt out stainless steel grill for the trash man . i was able to tear out all the burner stuff and fit the sink into the cabinet .the thing is great i can close the lid when not in use and just hoook the hose to the back that supplies the faucet . for the drain i ran a pool filter hose to a dry well .

I put a sink in my outdoor kitchen and am very pleased with it. It is stainless steel, has 2 sinks, one deeper than the other. I bought it at Home Depot. It is cold water only, was easy to run pvc to it. I drained it out under the lawn through a 20 ft long, 4 inch black perforated pipe with a sleeve and a cap on the end. I've got it on a 20 foot counter that icludes my BBQ. The counter is concrete, I'd also recommend a concrete counter, it is attractive and requires very little maintenance.

connect the faucet to a "T" then cut off the hose and clamp it to the t

how I might do it - There's likely better ways out there to do it as well.

Parts list
2ea. supply lines that fit your faucet - 3/8 x and longer is better.
1 ea. 3/8 inch compression T fitting.
1 ea. 3/8 compression to 1/2 male adaptor (my drawing lists this as a 3/8 compression to 1/2 female - sorry)
1 ea. Female garden hose to 1/2 female pipe adaptor. (my drawing lists this as 1/2 male to female garden hose adaptor)

cut 3 inches off of one line and save for later
connect supply lines to your faucet - do not over tighten
put a gentle bend in the long supply line and connect to middle part of the T fitting
connect the shorter line to the one of the end connections of the T
connect the 3 inch piece to the 3/8 comression to 1/2 adaptor and connect that to the garden hose adaptor - using teflon tape on the plumbing fittings is good idea.
connect this assembly to the compression T fitting and you're done.

I made a quick and ugly sketch.

added 1/5/10 - You should use a hose that is safe for drinking water - and might also consider attaching a backflow preventor to your hose bib at the house as an additional measure.
