Looking for a stove top mod

I've seen a mod for the stove top. Removing the metal cover and replacing it with wood. Anyone have a how to and pictures?

My metal cover is dented, scratched and ugly.

We went with this one, wife likes it, it has rubber on the botton. You leave it on the stove even while traveling.

I just bought a cutting board that was the same color wood as my cabinets. When we travel I put the cabinet rubber gripper stuff under it and it never moves. I didn't glue it on to the cutting board beacuse when camping I also flip the board over and use the underside as a trivet! Also only paid $20 for the board. I believe it is a Paula Dean Dough board if my memory is right

We have the same one and it fits perfect, there is a template with it that shoes where to put the feet for various brands of stoves and all the holes are pre drilled. I had to put 2 new holes in ours as I wanted it to sit abit different than the factory did. Abit pricey but you get what you pay for and the flexible cutting board ours came with it very nice as well. The pic of it is here.

Our latest additions prior to Indiana 2012

Here are some photos of what I did. We have a cooktop, not a stove, but you could do the same thing for a stove. The top is laminate with a maple edge. On the underside, I made a piece for the rear that has the contout of the cooktop so that it locks in place. We use this cover so much now, we would not know how to do without it.

It goes from the wall to the front edge of the counter so we get the most useable counter surface.

With laminate, we can't put hot things on it or cut on it though. I am going to make a new one exactly the same but made from an 18x24" cutting board blank available at www.countrymouldings.com.

Also, with the weight of this thing, we leave it in place for travelling and it stays in place. No need to stow it away.
