Removable Galley Counter-Top Shelf
Here’s a sturdy galley counter-top shelf for small
plug-in electric appliances (toasters, coffee makers, etc.)
designed so as to allow continued access to the ice box /
refrigerator while freeing up counter-top space. The shelf can
be left in place for other items (fruit bowls, flowers, etc.),
or removed and its legs folded for storage when not needed
Materials: piece of ¾" pine stock
(approximately 35" x 8"), 11 brass screws, 4 brass
1" hinges, 3" Velcro strip (self-adhering
"sticky" type), plus stain &/or stain-varnish.
[Note: If you’ve previously made the
"paper towel holder" (see other projects on Projects
page), both the shelf and towel holder can be used at the same
time.] Pictures of the finished shelf and plans are shown
