I will do that. Just wanted the stand like it is to set everything up and do the plumbing etcIf you're going stainless sheet over it anyway, the domestic regs for splashbacks around stove tops is just some FC sheet with stainless sheet over. If you did that, you'd be absolutely pissing it in. FC sheet costs nothing, just liquid nail it to your plywood and then cover with stainless as you were going to. I think the FC sheet needed to be 6mm or something like that.
I was also just going to do the wet run in the timber.
