Default Portable Sink/Prep Table????

Hey folks. I'm looking to either buy or build a portable prep table with a sink built into it. I would rather buy it already made, but if someone has something they built and want to share the design that would be great.

Academy sells a folding fish cleaning table, but I'm looking for something a little more sturdy.

I have been thinking about the same thing for a while....something like a simple 2X4 frame with a cheap countertop and a large sink. A simple garden-hose hookup and a flexible drain tube long enough to get the wash water away from the cook area.

Here is what I use. Bought the shelf at Sams and just cut the hole for the sink. It also has a container for fresh water with a battery operated pump incase we are somewhere withot running water.

If I know me like I think I know me, I'd get one of these laundry room plastic sinks ($45 at big box hardware stores) and simply put it next to my prep table. Might even make a lid for it so I could use it as a serving table.



Guess you sorta got to figure out how big of a sink you are talking about, though.

Also, remember the more sturdy it is, the heavier it will be.

Lastly, it wouldn't be too difficult to take a folding table and drop a sink in to it (shouldn't be too hard to find a kitchen sink on craigslist for cheap).

Check this one out. Looks like it's a sink dropped in to one of those plastic cabinets.



And this was posted a couple years ago



If you were really handy, you could make it so the side tables were hinged so they would close for easy storage. Sorta like this:

I think what you want to Google is "Camp Kitchen +sink"

This is probably close, and is pretty inexpensive.

I made a table a few years back. Can't find a picture to share. Used a Chargriller stainless steel sink unit that has a quick connect for a garden hose. The sinks drain into a bucket in the cabinet underneath. Made the table 8 feet long with a wooden 2x4 frame and 8" pneumatic caster wheels. Then I got carried away with my creation and paneled the sides with tongue and groove knotty pine. Added cement board and ceramic tile to the top. Very nice table, heavy enough to hold the canopy in strong winds, but, too farking heavy to move.

It works well enough for where I live now. Roll it out of the garage (a 10 foot journey) in spring, then back in the garage in the fall.

My observation with the few (the well run ones) comps I've done is that they will have places to drop your gray water. Most I've been to freak out if you just let it trickle out of a hose, etc. So you'll need a drain basin that can be moved to the gray water dump. Just a reminder for those looking to build one for comps... I saw a team with a large drum on a dolly... 3 guys trying to dump it. Suffice it to say that it didn't quite work out.

I like it. Do you know if Sam's still carries that table?

I built mine. I took an old 6ft folding table and removed the legs. Then I bought a piece of HDPE and screwed the legs to it. Then get a jigsaw and cut a hole out for the sink. The cutout piece can be used for a cutting board. You should also get a router and put a radius on all of the edges.

Edit: That link is just an example. I would recommend buying locally to avoid high shipping costs.

I bought the same table at Sam's for about $115 as best I remember and a double laundry sink at Lowes I think or Home Depot. You can get single sinks as well. I like the utility (laundry) sink because it is so deep and I can wash my big pots.
