Hi there: This is the china hutch that I tried to explain without a pic. Needless to say pic’s are worth a thousand words. This paticular built in is not in my home but a historical home in McKinney, Texas. Its in a victorian home built in around 1910. I like the size and the fact that it has curved doors both convex and concave. This particular china cabnet is mahogany, but the one I want to build is red maple and I have about 800 baord feet of it in 10ft.pcs. and as wide as 27inches by 4inches thick. I’ll have to resaw all of it but it will be worth it as the wood was free for a clean up fee. I guess I can’t beat that with a stick. I will do some veneer work on the bottom drawers which hold flat ware ,table cloths etc.and I already have low voltage lighting which is for a jewlery case, These are small diameter lights 1 3/4” and are recesed. This hutch is only 28” deep although it looks deeper. If anyone would like to comment please do as I like feed back. Ol cuttertwice.
