Mini Mods ....

We like to sleep head end by the counter , so the flip up counter extension was a problem because we also have a foam topper . This has now been remedied by narrowing the flip up counter extension by 2 inches . I think one would not easily notice that it is narrower . Easy up and down now !
In the 15A one really does have a good piece of counter space between the stove and sink , however we did not take the stove cover because it would block that useful space at the back of the stove . As noted by CPAHarley in another thread it is nice to have a cutting/prep board on the stove ..... so Wolf made a very fancy cutting board ( don't think I will ever be able to bring myself to cut on it though ) . Adds a great space .

Stove cover..

The stove cover also doubles as a tray and we also have matching sink cover as well a paper towel dispenser/tea towel bar .

Wolf did a great job on those things, Gabby. What a handy guy to have around.
I see purple heart, walnut, maple and a few other wood species in there....very nice.

Thanks for saying so , Wolf spent a good deal of time on them . There are seven different natural woods , plus the oak sides of the stove cover/tray .

Beautiful, nice work. Now that you have made one, you can make more and sell them, I'd like a stove and sink cover set, please.

The tray idea is not only beautiful but extremely functional. My son made a cutting board very similar with all those woods and I've never seen my daughter-in-law cut on it either...much too beautiful.

Have you tried either in the "tow mode" to determine if they stay put?

Wolf says thanks ... Karen, I know just how your daughter--in-law feels . Yup , the sink cover was in use at the rally , it is routered out to fit the sink - doesn't move . The tray/ stove cover is an exact fit over the stove , maybe an 8th of an inch play so that it really can't move at all . With it being all solid wood it has enough weight to not allow it to jump ( which it really couldn't anyway as the stove is a couple of inches high ) .
