Run a bead of the silicone caulk around the edge of the cut out for the sink and drop the sink in.

Hello, When I change out a sink I use a whole tube of caulk. I run a bead on the cut out itself right on the bare press wood then I smear it all over the raw wood. I try to seal the press wood a little water will cause exterme damage. I then caulk around the cut out paying close attention to the rear where the faucet will be. When I set the sink I put two clips as close to the faucet as possible. Single handel faucets have a tendency to cause the s/s sink to flex and break the seal.
Good Luck Woodbutcher
