    Here's how to make it:

    1. Measure out your stove. You'll need to check the length and width of the range, and the height of the burners.

    2. Sand and stain the boards, then let them dry overnight.

    3. Use wood glue to attach the C pieces to the B pieces. The thin sides of the board should be flush so they can stand.

    4. Drill three screws into each set of boards.

    You'll want to pre-drill holes first, of course.

    5. Attach handles to the B sides with long wood screws.

    7. Lay four boards across, using glue to attach them to the C pieces. Let the glue dry overnight.

    You want to make sure these boards are exactly the length of the space between the two B boards so you don't leave any cracks for crumbs to creep through.

    8. Finally, lay it over your stovetop and use as you would extra counter space!

    Another bonus? It also works as a serving tray.
