This is a quick play kitchen I knocked together for my son. Nothing fancy since it’ll get beaten and broken (and that’s the point). The carcass is home center pine, the burners and handle bar are off cuts of oak stained black. The knobs are pre-made toy truck tires. The only concession to fancy joinery I made was the oven window, which is a panel slotted into the rails and stiles, which is sturdier, but more effort, than just screwing it on to the back. He’ll never notice, but I certainly will.
In terms of safety, I designed the handle so that it is in contact with the floor when the door is open, and put a friction stay so that the door opens slowly.
The oven rack is a steel cooling rack that I hacksawed down to size. It was refreshing and oddly liberating to make something about as far from fine furniture as it’s possible to get.
