Not much got done last night but I did finish up my Viking range. My trusty friend matboard to the resuce again!

This is all matboard? Wow! It's amazing!
It's matboard faced with aluminum sheeting on the front. The matboard is super easy to work with. Aluminum sheeting not so much lol
That turned out amazing! I want to make a vintage Wedgewood stove with a griddle insert and aluminum sheeting looks like it would work for that. Is it something you can find at a craft store or did you get it from a hardware store?
I actually just ordered it from Amazon but I also saw it in the Blick Art Supply store in larger sheets. It's thicker than what you would use for, say, scrapbooking. That's what I was expecting but this is like REAL aluminum sheeting so heavy scissors or even some tin snips are what you will need for cutting. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KKV2MVE/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Looks amazing! What did you use for knobs?
Knobs were just circles of fimo with small rectangular slivers added to the top.
In full disclosure, I actually got my inspiration for this from a youtube video so i cant totally take credit but I did change up my design. Here's the link! https://youtu.be/fX_t8FvVvdY
Love that Tut... I like the look of yours better though.
Do your doors work too?
