***All of my building pictures were deleted during a large "computer problem". Use the building methods in this link for "basic" building instructions:
We are simply making a "shelf" with hinged doors on the front...nothing more complicated than that! :)

1.  Cut out all of your pieces as described and sand them smooth!

2.  Attach your 1x3 control panel to the top edge of your stove top using 2" wood screws.

3.  Attach your sides to your top using 2" screws.

4.  Attach the 1x2 toe kick to the bottom FACE of the stove, and then attach your bottom shelf directly on top of that using 2" wood screws.

5.  Attach your wood dowels to the sides of your stove at 7" (from bottom of stove SIDES to the TOP of each dowel) using wood glue and clamps.  Make sure that they are attached LEVEL and EVEN across from each other. Allow to dry overnight:

6.  Attach the MDF backing to your stove. Fill all screw holes with wood putty and allow to dry overnight. Sand until smooth.

7.  On your 1x12 "door" piece, measure down from the top 2". This will be the TOP of the hole you will cut out. Cut a hole which measures 5.5"W x 5.25"h. Sand all edges until smooth.

8.  Paint the interior and exterior of your stove and door GRAY/SILVER. Spray paint your 4 burners, clock, grill, and knobs BLACK.  Allow to dry overnight.

9.  Attach your acrylic to your stove door INTERIOR by first pre-drilling a hole in each corner of the acrylic INTO the stove door, and then screwing with 4 small screws. Attach all door hardware: hinges, pulls, magnetic closures.

10.  Attach your burners and grill plate with screws, and glue/clamp your clock. Drill small holes and GLUE in your "knobs". Allow to dry.
 You are now finished and READY FOR PLAY!!!!
