DIY RV Stove Cover: Learn How to Easily Craft Your Own Protective Cover
Take a sheet of aluminum foil and cut it in size of the cover. Rub the sheet with sheet metal cleaner to remove grease and dirt. Place the foil on the inner side of the cover and rivet the edges so that the foil is fixed with the cover.
Making a cover for RV stoves can make the kitchen more pleasing to the eye and help to reclaim the space lost due to the stove’s bulk. Follow these steps carefully to create a safe and attractive cover for your RV stove.
Firstly, take the measurements of the stove from top. Consider covering the burners, as well as leaving enough depth to accommodate them. Using a stainless steel sheet metal, mark the length and width at which the sheet will bend to form the top edges of cover. Extend these lines to add height on all four sides. Keep in mind, the size of outer rectangle marked on the sheet should have a length of the cover plus twice the height of the cover and the width of the cover plus the height. Once extended, the lines should form squares at each corner.
Cut the outer rectangle, as well as one line on each corner square up to the point where it intersects the other line. Place the metal sheet after cutting on the metal brake’s platform, and align the line to be bending alongside the seam on the metal brake. Put the metal brake bar over the sheet metal, and tighten the metal brake bar using C-clamps. Pull up the levers of the metal brake to make the bend, then remove the C-clamps. Repeat this step to create the other sides of the sheet metal.
Fold each flap on the four corner squares to the outer side of the cover so that it overlaps the side. Drill a hole in each corner of the cover for fixing the flaps with rivets. You can then use a riveting gun to rivet the corners, fixing the sides of the cover.
The final step is to give the cover the finishing touches. Take a sheet of aluminum foil and cut it in the same size as the cover. With the sheet metal cleaner, rub the sheet to remove grease and dirt. Place the foil on the inside of the cover, and rivet the edges so that the foil is fixed with the cover. Finally, you have an attractive and sturdy cover for your RV stove.
This project is sure to spruce up your RV kitchen, reclaiming the lost space due to the stove. Making a cover for RV stoves is a simple project that can be done with a few simple tools, and just a few simple steps. With it, your kitchen will look neater, more comfortable, and more inviting for you, your friends, and your family.
Making a cover for your RV stove is a great way to reclaim counter space, while giving your kitchen a more graceful look. It’s an easy DIY project that can be done with a few tools and supplies. Follow the steps below to make your own cover.
First, take the measurements of your stove. You need to know the measurements of the stove top, as the cover will rest on top of the burners and be deep enough to accommodate them.
Place the stainless steel sheet metal on a flat surface and mark out the length and width where it will bend to form the top edges of the cover. To provide extra height on all four sides, extend the outer lines and form squares at each corner. Cut the outer rectangle, then cut one line on each corner square up to the point where it intersects the other line.
Put the metal sheet on the brake’s platform, aligning the line to be bent alongside the seam on the platform. Place the brake bar over the sheet metal and tighten it using C-clamps. Pull up the levers of the metal brake to make the bend, then remove the C-clamps and repeat for the other sides.
Next, fold each flap on the four corner squares to the outer side of the cover so that it overlaps the side. Drill a hole in each corner of the cover as well as through both the outer side and flap, then insert the rivets and use a riveting gun to secure them.
Finally, you can install your cover. Lift the cover onto the stove to make sure all the corners are properly aligned, and then use washers and screws to secure it in place.
Once you have followed these steps, you will have a perfectly custom-made stove cover that will look great and keep your RV kitchen looking neat and organized. Now when you open up the stove, you can admire your DIY creation, knowing you have created a unique, practical cover in no time at all.
