In response to Re: Cutting hole for stainless steel sink in already installed countertop
: Do I use the template that came with the sink? or can I leave more on the back side by drilling holes for the faucet and cutting towards front of the holes for opening for the sinkwells?

Depends. There are several grades of stainless steel sinks.
The higher grade units have thicker walls and support themselves on their rims much better.
If you have a high grade sink, go ahead and use the template.
If the sink is a low grade unit (Under about $200), you may be able to gain some extra stability
in the manner you described. However, be sure that you take very good care to seal around the
faucet. If the faucet leaks and you install it in the manner you described, you will rot out the
counter top. Good Luck
