One thing I've noticed on some of my boats: Some fiddles are not a flat piece of wood but tapered from the countertop to the top edge. It is my impression that if that taper is on the inside (counter side) and if a pan or something slides and hits the fiddle, the taper helps to launch it over the fiddle (does this make sense?) Mill the taper on the outside. I'm not a fan of tall fiddles (sometimes I really wonder if they are worth it except for minor slides) but I would make them tall enough to use as a handhold. The other thing that really is handy is to make cutouts in the fiddle (ie: no fiddle) that are flush with the counter to get the crumbs etc off the counter! If you do this at the corners you can save some difficult wood work too.
