Get those !@#$ beads out of the kitchen sink!! A dry sink photo tutorial.
If you're hearing this from your significant other, or simply want to unclutter your kitchen from bead cleaning flotsam, I've just created a photo tutorial on how to set up your own self-contained bead cleaning sink. I guess it's called a "dry sink" because it's not plumbed, which is good for this purpose, since bead release can really do a number on your plumbing. This project takes a commercially sold laundry tub and vanity combo and turns them into a functional sink that you can use anywhere.
The tutorial is here. While I bought this (admittedly overpriced for the quality) vanity and sink as a combo, you could get really creative with your own design, using most any container with a drain hole as the "sink", and any piece of furniture for the vanity. I like that the bucket and water supply jug are hidden behind the cabinet doors, but they wouldn't have to be.
