We are going to trim the window moulding a bit more to run a little channel for the cord & cover it with a metal angle. A flat piece of metal will also go up next to it for appearance. So instead of seeing white moulding behind the corner of the stove, it will be metal. I still need to get over there at some point to help install the cabinet pulls.It's all coming together very nicely, especially considering where your friend started. I am still a bit concerned about that wire behind the stove. Maybe you could put it in a metal track or something. And a cloth curtain so close to the stove also seems like an invitation for trouble....granted, it's not a gas stove with flames....but still in all......
How did you attach it to the cabinet? And how does it work batteries, electricity?
Good timing on this reply.I understand that things have to have priorities and sometimes you can't do it all at once, but please ask you friend to be sure that there is no hazards around the stove. Paint isn't a good fire retardant and wires can melt
The lights attach with 2 screws that don't sink all the way in to the wood. They hang a bit so the grooves on the lights can catch and then slide over a little (so they need to be offset just enough to compensate for the final position). They connect to power via electric cable and can be turned on/off with a battery operated remote control. Only one of the lights is plugged in to the socket, the others are linked with included cables. My friend drilled through the overhanging part of the cabinet on the undersides to be able to tuck the cables up so they aren't visible unless you stick your head under there.How did you attach it to the cabinet?

Epoxy can melt with heat-- if you noticed some of the instructions for installation involve removing bubbles with heat. It may be fine for walls behind counters, but I would not recommend it for behind a stove. I think Stainless Steel would be the way to go for that.Good timing on this reply.
im in the process of deciding what back splash to use behind a similar range. since I just used a countertop refinishing kit, my sister suggested I make one to match. Using 1/4” plywood and adding the three coats of counter top refinish paint. Now I’m wondering about the safety of that backsplash. Maybe for safety I should use solid stainless steel. Here are some pics of how it,looks today. Any opinions?
