There's also bamboo cutting boards that look nice and tend to absorb less. That's what we used for our stove cover. We got the board at Tuesday Morning, and small rubber feet from the cabinet section of Home Depot. I took the grate off the stove, flipped it over on top of the back of the cutting board, marked the locations for the feet, pre-drilled some shallow holes and screwed them on. I have them lined up so that the rubber on the feet snugs down between the grating on the stove and creates some cross tension. The rubber feet also keep it from sliding around on the counter when it's being used as a cutting board.
The board works great to add some counter space and has never moved in transit. I just wish we had gotten a bigger board though, DW liked the smaller one, so that's what we used, and I'm not the biggest fan, but the design idea is sound, and in a few years, I'll replace it with a bigger one when the moment is right...
