Project Information

We have an older refrigerator and my wife was going to order a couple of shelves that were broken. I told her to wait… went down into my shop and made these. They can be removed etc. The ends are 2X4 so I could give them a shape to allow the door clearance. The hook system is luane (any thin plywood will do) for stability and the bottom is 1/2 thick board. I made them 2 years ago and they work great. Wood working in a practical venue… and the wife is happy!

Thanks for posting. I have the same problem with the refrigerator in the garage. I will have to fix that using your idea.

That is a good idea, the plastic shelves always break, I bet your wood ones will last longer than the refrigerator.

Good idea and project that will last a long time. I would bet that the replacement shelves would be very pricey.
An example of aftermarket parts would be my old '77 Ford- a parts manager said someone figured buying the parts over the counter and building the car would cost about $40K. Sticker on mine was about $6200!
