New stove top board

Finally got my stove top board done. And the best part? It's reversible, so you can use both sides. No lip, no shower rod holders screwed to the back. Stayed in place perfectly while towing. The secret? Rare earth magnets embedded in the corners to hold it tight to the stove grate! A simple plug over the top of the magnet and we're good to go! Why does my phone turn photos sideways? Grrrr....

Did you make that board? beautiful color inlays. It's that nice that I would be afraid to use it as a cutting board. Job well done....

I AM the DW, and yes, I did indeed make it from start to finish. It's actually cherry sapwood (which I love, because it doesn't get quite as dark as the heartwood), walnut and a bunch of exotics...padauk, redheart, santos mahogany, and bloodwood. I don't like to advertise our business on these forums, (and I don't think it's allowed) so if you're really interested in a board similar to this one, please message me for more information. Thanks for all the likes! I've also made two wall mounted shelves for our camper. And my DH has made a replacement for the outside work table after it pretty much fell apart being in the rain ONCE. He also made some beautiful bent-lamination coat hooks and a side table. My next project will be to rebuild the countertop extension into a "butcher block" style piece. The T-moulding on the cheap particle board piece is pulling out, so I'll just make a new one and use the existing hardware. I'm holding off on making a cutting board for the sink cover, since I want to replace the sink and faucet.

Whew! Pretty soon this puppy will be completely outfitted with beautiful REAL wood.

Thanks again for the comments!

Trudie

Thanks! Funny you should say that. The "tagline" for our business is Functional Woodcrafts. I'm all about function; I prefer to make things useful instead of making tchotchkes that sit around collecting dust.
