Default Herb would be proud

I’m building a floating corner shelf in my gym to temporarily hold a mini fridge .
I thought about Herb when I built the wall, and having a perfect right angle was a concern as the more accurate the angle was the easier the build would be .

Anyways when I put the square inside it , you couldn’t get a playing card between it at any point .
I must also add that having a Track Saw is an awesome tool to have in your arsenal when you need to cut a triangle.
The top fit in so well that you only have to give it a slight tap to make it drop into place .
I am going to paint it and add a front cap to it tomorrow with a piece of mdf and checker plate .
I had a concern that the middle of the shelf may sag after time , so I added two supports underneath,plus I secured a 2”x2” x 1/4” thick piece of angle iron to the back of the front 2by4

To be continued

Nice to have square walls. Wish I had one in my house. Had to get a gizmo to measure corners when remodeling the main bathroom- each inside and outside corner was different!
Edit- Refrigerator in the gym? Workout and have a dish of ice cream!

No Ice cream in the gym fridge ,but lots of beer lol.
The last time my neighbour come over to visit we killed a 15 pack in about 90 minutes , and of course I run out minutes after the beer store closed .
So I vowed never to let that happen again and bought a mini fridge on Black Friday so I had a place to store more cold beer .
There’s already one fridge built into the wall ,but it’s full of water . I’m planning on rebuilding that wall one day so I can accommodate this fridge . Then I’ll just use the floating shelf for other storage.

It was on sale at Walmart for $200 , regular $500 . 126 can capacity!

I'm with Nick, I think the angle iron is over kill. Better too strong than too weak though.

I think it would hold a full size fridge with the angle iron. But it will be full of beer....

How does the air circulate with the built-in refrigerator?

Nice little project Rick. Plenty strong. You were wise to overbuild it given the load it will be supporting. That will be something like 95 lbs/43 kilos of beer. That's about a 10 year supply for me.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
