A small project but it came out well. If anyone wants dimensions or more description let me know.

Thanks.
That looks awesome , similar is style to the one wolf made for our stove , and it work perfectly as a backsplash for cooking!

That is one handsome board. Love the multi-colored wood used.

dfandrews: I hear you. I'm no cabinet maker but also like to collect tools. As for the pocket jig, I have what they now call the Kreg JigŪ R3. Not too expensive and extremely useful. I used it extensively in restoring our 1955 Shasta trailer. Highly recommended.

gabeck: That is one nice stove cover. It's good to hear it will work for a back splash. For the finish, I used one application of Watco Danish Oil in Golden Oak. Then two coats of Minwax Plyurethane, steel wool and tack cloth between and after coats. I wasn't trying to match the Escape interior and, to be honest, I haven't compared them yet. I just knew these work well and had them on hand. Awhile back "Ron in BC" suggested "Water based Varathane Diamond Woodfinish" as a good match.

Thanks.
