Any genius ideas?
There are lots of things you could use.
Do you have a tools such as a table saw and hole saws?
Fabricating a mounting plate adapter is not all that difficult but it does require some basic tools and skills.

We have it all.

Tractors1, I might take you up on that custom made piece, as we don't have a lathe, however.

But...I give you our possibly temporary, but quickly created, cheap solution (camping in less than 10 days now, and don't even know if the plumbing works yet!)...a hole saw and a nylon electrical plate. I need to get new longer screws for the faucet screw holes.

This gives me reprieve to make sure our bed is in order, and we have everything else working, too.

Lemme know, I could make two that you could use one above and one below the countertop to sandwich things together. Drills/cuts easily with common wood working tools.

Jennifer,

I love your solution! And I hope you don't change it; you can caulk it if necessary, it looks great, and will remind you how clever you are!

Happy Trails!
