I am asking carpenter to build one table top cabinet for bathroom. He never did anything like this It will have marble top with hole and sinks placed on it. For exit of water pipes will be there from sink bottom, how do I factor in space for pipe to take water from sink to drain pipe. Do i keep pipe shape space in cabinet or leave all space after pipes empty?

    If you are doing your own plumbing, get started reading about what to do. But if you are hiring a plumber then the best bet is to have your plumber take a look at the bathroom together with the carpenter - that can avoid a lot of confusion and "oops" cost. May 6 '21 at 22:32
  • "table top cabinet" Does that mean your bathroom vanity will look like a table with two sink bowls in it? i.e. something that's open on the bottom? Or will it have doors/drawers like a typical bathroom vanity? If it's open or door space, then you don't have to worry about the tail piece/trap - there will be plenty of room for the plumbing. If there are drawers, then yes, you'll have to factor in the plumbing space and the drawers will have to work around that space.
