Joby Elliott made this DIY overhead kitchen rack using about $40 worth of parts from Home Depot. Not too shabby!

    No hood, eh? If this is a rental, then I guess I would deal with it. However, if this is your house, I would highly recommend a hood for the stove. Everything above a stove gets covered in vaporized grease. This necessitates very frequent cleaning.

    I believe code requires gas stoves to be power vented to the outside, to exhaust the products of combustion. I don’t think the vent has to be in a hood. However I can’t tell from the photo if such a vent exists.

    No worries about greasing my house, we don’t cook with grease.

    Looks great! I’m digging that butcher block, too, wish I could get my hands on a shorty like that! Modern counter tops are too high for me. =
