I built this cleaning table out of cypress and installed it on my dock. Now when I come in after fishing and have kept fish to clean for supper, I can easily & quickly clean fish on the table. The four coats of marine varnish protect the table from the elements and make for easy cleanup by hosing everything down when I am finished.

The cutout in the top and the t-pegs on each side make it easy to install & hold a plastic garbage bag to rake all the mess into for easy disposal.

Nice table, Sawdust! I hope you use a cutting board and not the table itself!

Norv, here all of 14 days and elected yourself the grammar police already, eh?

Looks too nice for getting all cut up. A few months ago I gave my neighbor a 12×30” x1/4” piece of UHMW for cleaning fish. Mike said it has been great for cleaning and protects his cleaning table.

Throw the fish back. eat hamburger. Save the table. (it can always double as a potting table.)

That thing is sweet. Someone is bound to steal that from your dock.
