Using wood for vanity with vessel sink- Do I need to drill holes?

I want to use a glaze top coat instead of several layers of poly. Do I need to drill holes for sink & faucet first?

    Great question! I think you should take a look and see what other people have done!

    I would drill the holes first. This helps in two areas:
    1. You would be able to protect the wood inside the holes
    2. You won't break the seal created on the surface when you drill the holes. if you drill the holes after applying the glaze you'll be cutting into the sealant.

    I hope that made sense.

      Thank you that's how I was looking at it too. I'm sure brushing the sealant around in the holes would be an extra layer of protection on plumbing.
