Stove Backsplash

I got a special delivery from Pat at Q'site, a piece of ETI standard arborite, so I could add it to the wall behind the stove.

I've never liked the vinyl so close to where I might be frying something. I think that arborite is more practical in that area than vinyl.

So thanks Pat, I wish all mods were that quick and simple.

How is it attached to the vinyl? Contact cement or something else?

Thanks!

It's captive top and bottom, no adhesive is necessary. Pat did this mod quite awhile ago, I'm just copying it.

I copied as well, behind and on the side of the wardrobe. The back is, as ron said, captive both top and bottom. I also copied using a piece of edging at the sides. The wardrobe side is slipped under the existing backsplash and i did end up putting two velcro dots along the top to hold in place. i love it--no worries about splashes and it is lighter/brighter (my formica choice) than the oak.

Hope it's ok to respond Ron . No glue etc. doesn't need . Ours has been up at least 5 years . Cut a little bigger to allow to tuck behind your stove Vent and tuck behind your backsplash . Just loosen screws after you pop off the caps behind stove area . Tuck in about 1/4 in or so retigten screws . I found edging piece at Lowe's which matches the vinyl . That's it . Pat

Just saw Ron . You are quite Welcome . Looks like others are using my idea now . Best you can remove and not ruin the vinyl if need be . Pat

Custom formica

We did more or less the same thing with Formica left over from the build. When we picked up our trailer 2017 5.0TA) Escape included whatever custom fabric and Form was left over. I found that once cut, and edge sanded to fit behind the stove (allowing an extra inch to slide up behind the range hood ) we had a perfect, matching and easily removed for cleaning, backsplash protector. Similarly a smaller table top was also created and only required a 3/4 inch plywood piece to laminate the Formica to and two additional metal “donuts” to attach under the table top to receive the factory support legs/tubes.
