Do you have a stove with a ~3" wide flat top that’s just slippery enough that if you store stuff up there sometimes it slides off? Me too! #practical-cuts FTW!
Here’s a thing. I put adhesive craft foam on the bottom to give it grip on the stove.
The little thing top right is so you can verify it works for your thickness material. I made it to require hammering to go together. I used non-PG plywood finished on both-sides that’s .115"/2.9mm thick.
The side piece might not be needed so it, and its related holes are different colours so you can turn them to ignore.
I am so proud of myself when I create a solution. The laser has enhanced that ability. Well done.
Now my solutions have like 93% less duct tape!
Great idea! I have a similar issue-hate having things drop behind the stove or on the counter. Thanks!
Great job! I kept telling myself I was going to design something similar at our last house but never did. Fortunately our new home has a separate oven/stove so I don’t have this issue.
Will be a nice solution for more than a few! Thank you for sharing!
I did this one. It works better hanging on the wall behind, but if you foamed the bottom of it, it should work great on the back as well.
Folks here are genius; I love this community! Plenty of humor, too. Thanks to all.
Love it! Nice, thoughtful touch with the extra slot-checker too ~ thank you so much for sharing!
P.S. With all the creativity and ingenuity in this group, I’m anxiously waiting to see other creative uses for this. I’m still thinking…
This is so smart!
We have a slide-in (or whatever doesn’t have that back), but maybe I should make some sort of box for the space that is left back there… Hm.
A 2nd piece glued to the back that hangs down would give you the stopper that mine has - I wouldn’t want to rely solely on the foam!
Also - LOL - that’s adorable.
Yes! I mean, for nothing else salt & pepper or whatever spices you use for almost every meal
Thanks. I’ve been wanting to make something like this to gain some space above the stove. I keep debating about how dirty it will get and what I’d store there.
Dirt and ease-of-cleaning is why I used some of the stuff that was already finished on both sides!
