  1. Agree it is brilliant, however, one possible enhancement. Put the 2×4’s on the bottom of the frig, and inset them about 3″ from the front edge. That forms a “toekick” and allows you to stand closer to the workbench. Like a standard Kitchen cabinet.

  2. Don’t forget to use the fridge compressor to Make a compressed-air source for your workbench! Need to remove it before turning the fridge over, and have an HVAC tech remove the freon. You’ll need to add an oil trap and an oiling port. But you’ll wind up with a virtually silent air source for low-volume air tools, like airbrushes or paint sprayers.
