Cover made from furring strios again. Idea came from a picture that my wife found in a kitchen makeover magazine. First time I ever used stain and a router.

Nice work but why would you want a cover for the stove top? Do you need extra working space in the kitchen?

Take a close look at this one. When I posted it last year, I heard some of the same comments about “Turning a Stove on”. Simple, you make the back rail tall enough that the stove control knobs can not be reached. Also, be aware of WHERE the oven vents are. Some ovens will vent up through a burner.

Looks good though.

We have to take the cover off before we use the stove or oven. We really needed the extra space in the kitchen. Plus it makes a large flat space

Have your say...
