I'm sure my DH could make a wood sink cover, since he's a woodworker, but the sink would have to be a drop-in model, and the cover wouldn't be flush. Some things to think about. I'll start looking around for a slightly larger sink that won't break the bank and just get used to not having a sink cover. Not the worst thing I guess. Thanks for sharing this.

I was going to comment that I keep my sink covers in the cabinet since I don't use them. But then a light bulb came on that I could use the larger one by leaning it against the wall next to the stove when cooking bacon. Even with cooking on a low flame this would give the wallpaper a little more protection when cooking greasy food.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

We are going to put up a piece of stainless or aluminum on the cabinet next to the stove for this very same reason.

We dry camp mostly so DW using a small rubber tub to wash dishes and then dumps the dirty water in the toilet. That keeps from adding to the gray tank. Usually dish water comes from waiting for the hot water in the shower that goes into a bucket. When dry camping for 7 days even 40 gallons of water can go quick if your not frugal.

Also the current sink is a corner sink and even the big side is barely big enough for a 6" skillet.
