I have an outdoor BBQ Island that has a grill and refrigerator installed in it. The Island is made out of 5 3/4" concrete block with wood top and tile on top of that. Right now I have a A/V Receiver sitting on top of the bar, but was thinking I could use the space in between the fridge cut-out and grill to cut a hole and install an acrylic box with shelves for the receive and any other AV equipment.
The space between the fridge and grill is 34" wide and 31 5/8" from ground to tile. The receiver I have is 17"x 10.5"x 5.5". I was thinking the cutout should be 20" wide x 16" tall. This would leave 7" on each side. is that enough support?

Grill removed to show the thickness of the concrete block. Dont mind the rat mess [img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4676/26355751828_5039ff1ad8_k.jpg[/img]
If I was to cut the hole, could I use a angle grinder with concrete diamond blade?
