  • Got fridge.....make bench

    We bought a new fridge when our old one decided to quit working 2 weeks ago, too much to repair. They were going to remove the broken one when delivering the new one. The idea popped into my pea brain to use the broken one for a workbench in the shop. I had been using a plastic picnic table for a bench, but this is SOOO much stronger. Not exactly the nice wooden work bench with the wooden vise on the end I would love to have, but such is life.
    Plenty of storage space........anyone else want to post pictures of their oddball workbench?

    That works. No reason you can't add a vise. Great job of helping to keep our landfills a little less full for the time being anyway.

      That's ingenious! I've got an old fridge in my shop, and I just haven't lugged it up the hill to dispose of it yet. That's a great way to reuse!!!!

        Wow, that is a very good idea, I like your inside storage, I would add a piece of plywood to the top for a nice sturdy work area.

          Great idea WD...I think adding a good wooden top would make it even better. Did you take the coils off the back, and what did you use the door for?

              Great Idea.
              Use what you have, works for me.
              I used a large cable reel for a long time.

                Great recycling. I have an old fridge in the shop for storing paint and stain to keep it from freezing during the winter.

                        Ingenious ! But, I vote w/ the others and say put a double layered 3/4 ply top; construction adhesive in between the two sheets; anchor that baby down and you'll be happy the rest of your days.
