Pretty slick. I bought a metal folding one from Camping World, to use with my 3-burner stove. Other than the size difference, Is there any advantage to using wood instead of metal?

No I doubt any advantage except maybe putting HOT pans on it... this was so cheap to make and very useful for dishes to lay on after washing or putting my portable dvd player on there so i can view it from the bed....

We have a wood cover and use it as a cutting board, also hot stuff on it is no problem.....depends on personal preference I suppose.....Benny

humm, metal dents, rusts and gets scratched. One made of wood is "disposable" as needed, and as Christy mentioned...inexpensive to make.

Do the stove top covers for 3 burner stoves also fit over a 2 burner stove in a Scamp?
Did you do anything special to keep the wood from scratching the stove?

I made mine the same way but lined the under side of the top with a piece of sheet metal, and put some on top as well. I can put it back while the stove is still hot and use the top for hot pots.

I think it would depend on which layout your Scamp has.
If your burners are aligned Front-to-Back (in reference to the countertop), with the knobs to the side, then I would think not; because there would not be enough room to clear the sink. However, if your burners are aligned Side-to-Side, with the knobs to the front, then I think maybe... Most likely the case if you have the side bath; with the refrigerator & stove on the street side, and the sink on the curb side. This is the version where a 3 burner range is an option.

I made mine from 1/4" birch plywood with pine edges. It was painted with clear polyurethane. The center just touches the burner grates underneath for support and the edges touch the counter top for support. We usually cook outside on a Coleman stove and use the counter space provided by the stove cover for storage. We can't imagine doing without it. Of course, wood allows for a custom fit. Tom Trostel

Howdy, our cutting board stove cover sits about 1 1/2" higher than the stove top.....I think that it was laminated maple that I used....I don`t think that I`ve ever put it over the stove immediately after cooking, but use it before cooking in food preparation or just as extra counter space for electric fry pan or whatever......picture on my trailer pics on the web shots site at the bottom of my post....Benny

Very nice job! I think that will be one of my first projects this Spring.

We built our stove cover of 1/2" plywood with a pine stock edge that raised it above the heat. Here is how it looks. That is a laminated hardwood cutting board over the sink.

.... but the key lies in the next posting, scroll down.

... now, if you flip over the stove cover, we have a serving tray. Chips, dip, and cocktails.

Note the handholds on the left and right.

Nice tray, and clever double-purpose design, but where's the bed for the butler who does the serving? The B1700 is big for an egg, but...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
