    Default New Filet table

    Scored a aluminum sign out of the dump, cut it out and bent up the sides & back 2.5". The back bend took some effort. Made a aluminum frame with 3.5" legs. The table bolts to the live-well lid and hinges fully open. Have about $20 into it now, plan to top it with teflon a 1/4" of that looks to be $150.

    Very good, I happen to of found a Plastic White Cutting Board that was commercial size, 30"X 14", went and found a couple 1"X2" and screwed them on edge on 3 sides. I'm going to figure out a way to pin/ bungie cord it to the top of my cooler or maybe bolt or hinge or ?

    Sweet score. I'm doing the same with a piece of counter top that we just took out of our house. Might not last long, but it was free.

    Nice table Eric, I've got a aluminum food service shelf about the same size. Now I've got a idea how to mount it!

    I like it! I haven't figured out how to make one tip out of the way to clean halibut up there yet, which has stopped me from installing mine . . . I'm 6'4" and don't like wallowing on the floor cleaning larger fish, so I usually schlep them up onto the transom and clean them there - even the 100#+ ones. Much easier on the back . . .just gotta figger out something as elegant as this. Nice job!

    Pole Bender: Thanks for the tip I'll give them a call.

    Last year I did this real quick, it worked and gave me some ideas. It sat on a flat 1x4 & was held on by 2 bolts in the front the back was free and flexed up when I opend the live-well lid. It was only 3' x 22"

    I do not think you want to use UHMW, much better and safer is HDPE food grade, I make plastic tanks and cutting boards all the time out of the HDPE, the price should be about the same, the HDPE does not have the extra oils in it that UHMW has. Most HDPE is Natural color, white. I can even weld the HDPE. the UHMW is hard to weld because of the oils in it.
