WilsonArt is a laminate right? Don't think that any laminate can be edge formed around the inside curve of a sink, to allow an undermount?

Each sink seems to have a variable "foot print", or needed cut out. And under mounted sinks are normally be installed under counters of solid surface material, like granite, quartz, concrete, corian and such.

"Wilsonart" is a brand name of counters manufactured in several materials. There is an acrylic solid surface version of Wilsonart similar to Corian. If this is the material you're talking about, then you may (or may not) be able to undermount a sink in it. It wouldn't be easy to retrofit that way, for sure. My undermount was affixed to the solid surface top before the counters were installed.

Lillymae:

Yes, it is possible whether your top is plastic laminate or solid surface Wilsonart. The biggest problem is going to be whether or not the new sink can have a larger footprint than your old.

Google "Karran sinks"

I am not soliciting your business, but I charge around $1,000.00 to change out a solid surface sink, sink not included.
