Just made a similar item for my MIL (table between stove and door).

To prevent racking, you need a couple cross braces on the end. Put one midway down the back side (against the wall) and two on the front. The top cross brace on the front can have cup hooks on it to hang pot holders. The next would be clean to hang a towel, etc.

Its next to the stove, so put a few ceramic tiles on top. That makes a trivet for setting hot pans on.

This is the one I did,:


As mine had stretchers around the top and a plywood shelf on the bottom to hold her trash can, I didn’t need as much “racking” prevention.
