New cooktop backsplash/shelf for added prep space.

Dimensions are 9" by 24" .063 diamond plate alum trimmed with 1/2 "L" alum.
All fasteners are stainless.

Has just enough space for a toaster cord (or coffee pot) to plug in, will pull the vapors still up into the vent hood and leaves enough room for a tall pot and lid on the back burners. All metal for the heat and easily retracts to use as a backsplash. With the combo now of the sink cover, cooktop cover and folding counter extension, we now have plenty of room for prep and serving.

Maybe now the smoke alarm won't beep everytime we use the toaster on the counter.

That's a great idea! Looks good and I may have to do that to mine.

Very nice. How hot does it get cooking while in both up and down positions?

Thanks for the props.
Haven't tried it yet cooking- trip comng in a couple of weeks.
I am sure it will get pretty hot - why I made it all out of alum and steel.

I got the brackets from Amazon- 8"
They come from China so expect 2-3 weeks delivery.
Price is right though.

Did you fabricate the shelf, notching and cutting the 45's and diamond plate? I really like your sink lid and cook top cover. That was an option for us to make a sink cover but the DW wanted it out of Corian. Our stove top is acrylic and folds up to the back splash. The DW tried a wood cutting board top from CW, but it's too small and our range top is recessed. I will have to make a larger custom one out of wood along with a napkin, fork, spoon and knife holder that will fit behind the range top along the back splash.
Remember, a happy DW is a happy Life!

Love it! There is no such thing as too much counter space!
