Layout the sink template using the centre mark and the manufacturer's offsets.
Drill Pilot Holes
To accommodate the jigsaw blade, drill pilot holes in the countertop in the four corners of your sink template, just inside the cutout line.
Tape the Countertop
To ensure that the jigsaw doesn't damage the countertop, apply masking tape along the outside of the cut line.
Cut the Sink Hole
Run the jigsaw along the cut line. Support the cutout so it doesn't bind or damage the cabinet.
Dry Fit Sink
Place the sink into position and check for fit. Then mark the holes required for your faucet on the counter, using the existing faucet hole(s) in the sink as a guide.
Drill Faucet Holes
Remove sink and drill the faucet hole(s). Consult the manufacturer's instructions to determine the proper hole size.
Using the supplied "hold-downs", fasten the sink from underneath, making sure to follow the manufacturer's specifications.
Attach Braided Lines
Screw the braided lines to the faucet using an adjustable wrench, then attach them to the shut offs coming out of the wall.
