The black walnut Shampoo sink or “Wash Basin #1” was a collaboration with Benjamin’s Hair owner Ben DuBose. Ben’s space invites every man and even some women who miss Ben’s expertise from his days as a full-service salon owner. His client mix is certainly broad and varied and I wanted to give him a sink that would make any clientele feel welcome and warm. The beauty and advantage of wood is that it is always warm and holds warmth so well.
Sizes vary as the project needs but standard shampoo bowls have been our patterns. Our sink is much lighter than porcelain so the tilting mechanism can be loosened to accommodate the action. Lead time on this is 6-8 weeks as the epoxy finish is the same as any other sink. We can make 2 of these at a time but that’s our max.
