This is just a working mockup so I would have something for the stereo and VHF without drilling holes (that I'll likely change my mind about later). The final version will not have the speaker; the stereo & VHF will be lower and side by side. This will lower the burner; it's a little too close to the shelf behind the unit. I'll also add a fiddle to the edge of the lid and some cleats to hold the burner in place.
Hey, hey,this is the low-buck thread- there ain't no "working mock-ups" if it's working, it aint no mock-up- it's done. if it AIN'T's a "pre-production prototype."

All kidding aside, it looks slick. but don't get rid of the functionality of the galley stove.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
