Our stovetop allows terrible air leak out of its down vent, and I’m so excited to have a solution to the problem that is not a cutting board held down by a cast iron skillet. Typically, I have a propensity for trial and error over measurement (I like to think of this as being artsy rather than lazy), so I’m especially thrilled to say that this cover fit the first time.
Materials: 2 layers of medium thickness clear acrylic + 1 layer of medium thickness maple plywood, Gorilla glue (regular and wood versions)
Time: About an hour to measure, design, and upload the cut files. (The two layers of acrylic are slightly smaller than the wood layer, and the design has to be rounded to fit in the vent properly, so some new Inkscape skills for me.)
About 4 minutes of cutting a total of 3 layers (2 acrylic + 1 wood)
About 1 hour to engrave the quote, which was an afterthought. (In future projects, I’ll try to make these decisions earlier to take advantage of the masking paper.)
I’m thrilled with this modest little project.
