Two-burner stove cover?

I tried a search but can't figure out how not to get every instance of the word Stove.

Is there a stove cover I can buy somewhere? Or an easy plan to make one to cover a two-burner gas stove?

I made one out of wood. 1" x 2" for frame with a piece of 1/2" plywood for the top. I made the frame 3 sided so I could use the cover as a lap table. I like to have things multi-purpose.

I put cover on the floor while traveling. When I use the stove I put the cover over a small folding cabinet extension I have on the bed side of the kitchen cabinet, making the usable surface larger.

Great idea- I've been thinking about a cover for our stove as well but like that you can use it for other things too.

What do your cabinet extensions look like/are they made out of wood/screwed to the sink cabinet?

We didn't want another folding metal top for our two burner stove top so I bought a wooden cutting board from one of the hardware stores. The board was just large enough so that I could attach four legs made from a 1" wood dowel and I used four rubber cane feet on the dowels. The legs are just long enough to clear the burners and close enough to slip over the stove snugly. The cutting board gives more counter space when not using the stove and setting anywhere else also gives more counter space. I tried to glue the legs to the board but they came off so I drilled a center hole in the leg and screwed them to the board. When we switched trailers and went to a three burner stove the top still works setting across the stove. Hope this helps,
Jack of Tucson

The cabinet extension is 2 folding arms screwed to the cabinet with a small wood cutting board attached.

I'm thinking of re purposing the piece of counter top cutout for the sink in the house.

I am planning on using an inverted aluminum cookie sheet. That is if I don't remove the cook-top entirely. If you wanted to get tricky, install it with a couple of small hinges so it stays put, and you have a built in splatter shield.

I used a 17" Stainless steel baking pan. It stays in place fine during travel.

That is exactly what I had envisioned. I love the great minds on this forum!
