Farmhouse sinks usually have softly rounded edges. Regardeless of what material you intend to use to finish your sink, you should use a sanding block to round the outer corners and upper edge of the minature farmhouse sink. To do this, hold your sanding block at a 45 degree angle on the corners, and sand out the corner, then gently sand four round corners and a rounded top edge around your entire sink base as shown.
