How To Make A Noodle Board For A Gas Stove

Step 3: Drill countersink holes

Lay out your pieces how you want them. Examine your boards for any knots and where you want them to be, among other things. When everything is as you want it, turn the entire thing over so that the 1x6s are upside down on top of the 1x4s and the 1×4s are upside down on the bottom.

Now drill your countersink holes. Make sure they only reach about halfway into your lumber to avoid them getting too far down. If you’re not familiar with countersink bits, they are used to chisel out a tiny space where the screw head will rest. In this manner, it won’t be above the wood and might potentially scratch your cooktop.

On each board, I bored four holes—two on each side. Just make sure they will catch the 1×4 board below.

Step 2: Sand and prep lumber for your stovetop cover

I like to sand my pieces twice: once before assembly and again after. Although this is a matter of taste, it will be very beneficial to get in between the boards. For this first sanding, I use a coarser grit; use 80 or 100 grit, depending on the shape of your lumber.
