Hello. I have a flat cooktop stove and I want to be able to cover it when done cooking. I want to cover it with wood because of the weight and using legs so as not to be in direct contact with the hot surface. What woods would be most heat resistant and how tall would my legs have to be to prevent smoldering?

Is it an Induction top, like this one if it’s not an induction top then you should not cover it with any combustible product until it’s cooled.

If you’re thinking of a noodle board, I make them and have it printed on my invoice that the purchaser holds the sole responsibility to ensure that the range is completely cooled before placing the board on the surface. When the induction stoves first came out I would demonstrate them by cooking an item with a $100 bill between the range-top & a saute pan because they do not create any heat.
