I can not put the ceramic tile under my pedastal sink witout major major pipe work and sink reinstallation. Is there a way to cut down the bottom of my sink? I have tried some sanding but it will take me years! Cutting the tile to fit the fancy curve of the sink we be impossinle. Any other suggestions? Thanks, Allison

We deal with pedestal sinks all the time. We remove the pedestal from the sink, leaving the sink in place, and then we saw off the pedestal an amount equal to the thickness of the new tiles. Usually we do the sawing on the end that attaches to the sink. Occasionally, though, the bottom is cut down.

To get the pedestal out you must cut through the caulking that holds it to the sink. If you don't have a wet saw, you can take the pedestal to a tile or marble shop and have it cut. Won't cost much. At our place we do that sort of thing free of charge. Helps build goodwill.
