Delta One makes plastic drains. I've always used metal drains purchased from the local hardware store. Nothing special. In a plywood sink, before the epoxy resin step, use a small chisel and chisel a circle a little larger than the drain flange, a little deeper than the flange. Mount the drain so that it is below the sink surface level. Then epoxy resin the whole sink including the drain flange. The epoxy resin will fill in all of the holes from the chisel and make it so the whole recessed epoxy'ed drain assembly is lower than the sink surface for a good drain flow. As I said earlier, my drains are like this and are still good after 20 years.
