Default Stove Top Cover

My niece asked me to make her a cover for her stove. She sent a picture and the dimensions. I must say it looks nice in our kitchen. Now my sweetie wants one!

Easy to make. I bought a 24x48 inch project panel at the big blue box store. First step was to rip about 1 3/4 inches off one side. Then I cut the panel to size 22x30...and cut the strip in to two pieces that fit the panel. Next came the sanding. Then a little glue and brad nails, and it was ready for stain. I used Minwax "Provincial" stain, several coats of Shellac and a final coat of Minwax clear Satin.

Nice, Mike. I like that and may copy the idea.

Nicely done, Mike, but I gotta say the concept gives me the willies. What if one of the kids accidentally, or without thinking, turns a burner on?

Interesting. Don't think I have ever heard of one. Looks nice tho. With one of those, your wife can stack a whole bunch of stuff on there, then use that as an excuse for not cooking, and make you take her out to eat. Hehehehe

They don't have any kids yet.

Yeah, we could be in the same situation with the grandkids. But they know not to mess with grandmas stove!

I remember a few decades ago, one of the girls that oive next door was cooking bacon on the stove...and then the phone rang!

Nice Mike, never heard of that before, but a good idea. Who did the decal?

Sure would make a nice work surface, and protect the glass top. Sortt of matches the back wall behind the stove too.

My wife just now chastized me for leaving a burner on for the past several hours. She's done it too. A wooden cover is not appropriate for the memory challenged old farts.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

We have natural gas burners. I just double checked. You have to push the knob in, and then turn it before the electronic pilot starts sparking.

That is not a decal. It is a spoon rest or what ever you want to call it. It matches the tile backsplash!

My sweetie has already said she might also use it as a serving tray and have it set up on the buffet. Guess I need to get busy and build one for her. Gotta keep her happy.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
