That Danby fridge has been in there for probably 6 or more years trouble free .

In the future I’m rebuilding that wall completely. I need to mount a stereo amplifier and a music server on the left hand side as it’s too narrow to fit as it is .
I also would like a few drawers , but way back then I wasn’t confident enough to make them . Since joining here I look back and lol ,as I have no issues making them now and actually enjoy it .

I thought I’d test the fridge out before rebuilding the wall , as these mini fridges seem to get bad reviews .
If it keeps beer and water down to 34F like they claim , I’ll relocate it to the wall this spring .
Almost debating to make the hole too big next time and just install a filler plate just incase it calves and there’s no more available in that size .

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

What are you looking at for a music server? My 30 year old Sony 5 disc changer just died, and I am torn with how to replace it. I can find another older carousel, but with the majority of my music digitized now, I don't think I need a multi disc player, maybe it's time to go with a single disk / music server combo?

scared of what that might cost....


I could bite the bullet and just use a Bluetooth player with a USB drive, but that doesn't look cool

I went with Cambridge, as my local store owner was retiring and I saved a few bucks .
This is newer as mine is the previous model . The new one is the V2 .
I tested it on my home theatre system , as I stream all my CDs off my network drive in the basement. I RIP my CDs in WAV at the highest data rate of 44.100 ,and am very pleased with the sound .
I have a network connection on my home theatres pre pro , but I wanted to see if I could hear a difference.
I can’t , but apparently the Cambridge does sound better if you bypass the pre-pros DACs and go directly to analog .

Good job, Rick,
now you can use that same design, only rectangular for your router table after your shop is insulated.

Well I didn’t see this coming . Painted the top of the shelf and removed the mini fridge from its packaging that I bought on Black Friday .
Measured the height and it’s almost an inch and a half taller than the specs state .
Well I wanted to store a chair underneath my shelf, so I put located the shelf high enough to clear the chair thinking I had enough head room .
The fridge is exactly the same height as the ceiling ,so time to kibosh this idea .
And no , there’s no point in trying lower the shelf .

The good news is this was temporary anyways ,as I’m replacing the Danby with this new one , but I have to rebuild the wall to accommodate the wider size .

Another issue . That frigidair has probably got the worse design for the height options . If I had known that right off the hop, I would have returned it ASAP .

So two lessons learned I guess.

That is a drop ceiling in there, can't you lift the tile up and set it on top of the Fridge? Does the door on the fridge go clear to the top or is it a little lower.?

I looked it up and the door hinge is higher than the box. How much room do you have above the shelf?

Bummer,It seems If you didn't have bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all.

It’s all good . It was a temporary location anyways and higher than I really wanted to reach for a beer when I’m half inebriated .
The false ceiling is a unique system called Ceilingmax ,and it’s actually directly connected to the studs .
This old houses ceiling in the basement is only 7’ tall and changes to 6’10 on the other side, and with this ceiling tile system you only lose 1” of room. There is no play to move anything up higher.
So now I’m going to rebuild that wall ahead of schedule , but it’s cold in the shop as it’s still February . Was kind of hoping to do this in march .
