Default Fish cleaning table

Lost my fish cleaning table in the hurricane down in Sargent. I've been cleaning fish on a cooler top the last couple weeks and that had to stop. Just a plywood top, it's easy to replace and doesn't dull your knives. I made it just like the one I had but just a little bit higher.

Nice project Kevin, and 1000% better than a cooler top. Good luck putting it to use.

40" to the top. I like it to be high up and sturdy. I got several years out of my last one till it wandered off in the storm. I put a shelf on the side to hold my knife and hook the hose on.

Very nice table. Fished Sargent a lot for 20 years. Hope the fishing is still as good or better.

Looks great.
One slight modification/suggestion I'd recommend. Move that lower front 2x4 to behind the 4x4 leg, it'll give you 3-1/2 more inches before banging your shins into it.
(I speak from experience, lol).

It’s only there till I get it out of the truck then I remove it for that very reason. I learned my lesson on the last one. Lol

Built one like this year's ago and routed out a hole for a double cast iron sink.
Going to make another one before next year.

Well I've always said the best way to find something you lost is to replace it. Driving by a neighbor's place today and what does my wife see....my missing fish cleaning table that wandered off after the storm. I told the lady that was there it was mine, she said just take it I don't need it. I said no problem, she said several times she found it, ok. So now I have two. Oh well, I got it back.

Better make some more cool lures Kevin so you can keep BOTH those cleaning tables in action.
