Default "Ok Google" Floating Shelf......

Quick little project, wife wanted a google home mini for the master bathroom so she can just ask for music taking a tub ect ect. She didn't want it to sit on the vanity in fear it might get wet or have any cables hanging from the wall. So I took some left over counter top which is 1.5" thick bamboo and made a small little floating shelf. Because the google mini has about a 4 ft power cable I dung out the shelf to hide the cable in the floating shelf. Here is what it ended up looking like.....

Looks very nice, Tony. I like the way you hid the cable.

Great little project. Good solution for hiding the extra power cord.
