If you can't buy it of the shelf try visiting a glazier with your cardboard template to cut out from perspex or something suitable, if you can't do it yourself.

I made a cutting board for the round sink at home. Mine is narrower than the sink diameter so that waste can be swept into the sink (fitted with an Insinkerator) but if you get a wider board than you could cover the whole top.

If you have a router and a jigsaw then cut a thick board to the outside diameter of the sink and remove a section half the thickness of the board around the outside of the edge the same as the inside diameter of the sink.

If you only have a jigsaw (or a fretsaw and lots of time!) then cut two rounds - one the diameter of the outside and one the inner. Glue these together with polyurethane glue.

Rout or smooth the edges and oil with edible-grade oil.

You can buy large width boards in the shelving section of large hardware stores or glue narrow ones together.

Or.... you can buy a stupidly expensive one from Bunnings:Sink cover

Hi GT,

I suggest you visit your closest Jayco RV centre as all new Jayco vans, Sterling and Starcraft, have one and they could probably order one for you or point you in the right direction. I have had both and prefer the lightweight one which came with the Starcraft. Might be wise to check the sinks in the vans first and see whether they are the same size as yours though.

kind regards,
