One of my students did the same kind of thing. What they did was to build
the stove into a cabinet (wood), with a fold-down butcher block top that's
hinged so you can use one side to cook and the other as a prep area. The
whole works sets into a cabinet that they have painted with lovely Russian
designs. It does run on propane. They have done everything from a period
cheesecake to brownies in the oven...and they all come out beautifully.
