new hutch

it's a living room hutch!


salvaged drawers, a chopped up cabinet door, and a sweet cubby give some great hidden storage.


an amazing window salvaged from an old barn.


beautiful poplar body and bookshelves with adjustable height to fit whatever you need.

Hi - I love reading your blog and seeing the wonderful furniture you make. I have been learning how to make furniture for a few years on my own and I messed up a recent project. Looking at your hutch gave me an idea. May I ask, how did you attach the base to your cabinet? Attaching a 2 inch tall base to the bottom of my 7 foot cabinet would fix my dilemma but I want it to be secure. Any advice you can offer would be appreciated. And thanks for your wonderful blog! - Jenny

i just love how each piece is unique.

This could be a very versatile piece of furniture, for an office, nursery, craftspace... or even electronic equipment.

Thanks for showing it. You have such a creative knack, don't you?

thanks pat & jenny!
jenny, this piece was attached with the backer board. it's a thicker 1/4" ply, and the top piece overlaps the bottom. but your case would require something much more substantial since there will be so much more weight on the top. i often see metal brackets used on hutches, maybe something like that could work for you. just be sure it is screwed into some solid places so it doesn't pull apart.
