Setting stone sink in cntrtop.

I am new here, and a "DIYer", looks like lots of good info here. I am going to be setting a stone vessel sink into a Ceramic Tile countertop. We want to set the bowl below the top of the countertop, (about 20% below countertop). Has anyone done this? The sink came with a silicon strip to place between the sink and cntrtop (for wp seal I assume). My questions are: Should I frame out the inside of the cabinet so the sink sits on plywood to hold it in place? Should I set the sink in a mortar bed or just rely on the rubber seal? It seems to me that for stability you should have more of a base.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Rugger, welcome. I would support it with framing underneath. Maybe a couple boards (one in front of the drain and one behind it) running from side to side anchoring into the cabinet.
