This is my approach to the stove top cover situation.
Since I have the bed set up full time, I don’t have a dining table. Standing while eating works only so long. Time for a solution. I have designed a cutting board to serve triple duty: stove top cover, food prep counter, and dining table. Pics are attached.
I bought a wooden cutting board from that official Scamp
supplier store; Walmart. It is about 21" long x 15" wide. I sealed it with food safe salad bowl finish from a woodworkers store. (Much like a clear stain).
I then cut four, 2" long, 1"diameter dowels and used clear silicone to attach them to the bottom corners of the board (15 ¼" apart and 11.5" deep). I positioned them so that the right rear side dowel would go between the grates and the other dowels extending beyond the stove, resting on the counter top keep the board from shifting when traveling. I put a dab of silicone under each dowel leg to help keep it from shifting.
I then drilled two holes ½’ deep for two 10 penny (10d) nails 1.5" long with heads removed, and pressed them in the holes at one end of the board. These pins are the anchors for the table to attach to the top of the frig.
I also drilled and put in a nail in the center of the board at the other end that holds the support leg. I then drilled two holes in top of frig to correspond with the pins in the board.
When finished prepping and cooking the meal, be sure the frig door is locked shut with the little knob. I then face the end of the board with the two pins towards the frig and drop them into the holes at the top of the frig. At the other end of the table, I place a support leg placing the end over the single pin to keep it in place.
The table is 28.5 inches high so just about the same as a regular table and can be used from either left side with a chair pulled up to it, or while sitting on the front couch.
