The Copper Farmhouse Sink from Stone Forest is made from 100 percent recycled materials, which are 99.14 percent pure copper (standard), and lead free. The sink is created from heavy 16 gauge copper sheeting. Stone Forest’s Copper Farm is double walled on all sides, which enables a number of mounting options including under-mount, flush mount, partially elevated and above counter. The double wall construction also allows for a foam-fill, which according to the company, reduces reverberation and prevents the “tinny” sound. It also gives the sink a pleasing, substantial feel. One side of the sink is hammered and the other has a smooth front apron so that customers can choose which surface to display. The copper is hand patinated and has a living finish. It will achieve a patina or “weathered” look with everyday use and exposure to the elements.
