I'll try it out this weekend and see how it works.
Thanks for sharing.

I don't know if its my computer but I don't see an image. Can you repost it or email it to me at pdvasquez@gmail.com

Sooty I missed your request- we are on the road. I'll send the photos.

This has turned out to be a really useful mod.

Very clever. Saw this in person yesterday when a nearby Airforums member was kind enough to show me their Airstream. This is the way these cutting boards should come from Airstream. What a vast improvement.

Can be used to slide veggie/fruit trimmings into waste bowl below, ventilation while board is on sink longterm, and you can wash hands or quickly turn water on without removing the cutting board. Such a simple, yet clever, idea. Love it. Buying our first Airstream this year and this is on the 'to-do' list.

I meant to show to someone when I was at the mothership a couple of weeks ago. But I forgot to.

We are adding a flip up side board beside the sink on the 23D similar in concept to the one that was in the 25FB and the Classic.

I replaced my avocado double sink, with a SS single

The doubles were too small for pots and pans.

The new sink, of course, didn't come with an insert cover.

I want to make a butcher block insert, with a hole for water to go into, and
hole for a SS can for garbage.

SS= stainless steel
