A drainboard kitchen sink can solve several problems - from cracked granite to simply needing more sink space.
Copper sinks with drain boards are a bit pricey. Depending on the size, you can roughly figure an additional $800 or so for each drainboard side. I can build these in stainless as well. The stainless option will be significantly more than the copper due to the fact that stainless is much more difficult to work with. We build farm sinks with drainboards, undermount and drop in sinks with drainboards.
In my humble opinion my NexGen or Signature Series sink, that offers interior ledges to hold cutting boards and a grid, might be a better option for some of you.

These sinks are custom made. Generally, the bowl is about 28" long and the drain board is about 18" long. That being said, your wish is our command!
Certainly one of the largest sinks we have built. This sink measured 7 1/2 feet long! It featured two drain boards and an apron front with a custom horizontal patina. We shipped this one to Hawaii. This sink was designed to be under mounted. We have shipped quite a few sinks to Hawaii and Alaska.

One of our dear customers sent this photo of their copper under mount sink with integrated drain board. We offer a ribbed and a flat style. Both have a generous slope into the sink.
Here is a smart and less expensive alternative. Make the drain board as part of the counter-top! Great Idea!
Please do your homework. My drain board copper sinks are guaranteed to drain properly. I highly doubt some of the ones I have seen online will drain properly. A telltale sign would be to check the use and care section of the website. If they indicate you should dry or wax your copper sink - run the other way. Wax is for cars not sinks!
