no previous part Part 1 of Pine Country Cabinet series Part 2: Sanding, sanding and more sanding of the glued up panesl »

I started my newest project today. The latest issue of Wood magazine has a Pine Cabinet on the cover that will go very well in our kitchen at home. I am also going to build a second one or at least the lower half for my nephew who is getting married in July.

This is the stack of lumber to start.

Hopefully this is what it will become over time.This is a scanned photo from Wood magazine.

Today I cut sides and bottom of base cabinet to length, and glued up the panels.

I am going to try to post weekly or at least bi-weekly project updates on my blog.

It looks like you are well underway on this project Dave. It’s a very nice hutch. I think Michael Dunbar made something similar in a FWW mag article 3 or 4 years ago. He finished his with milk paint.

I just got a chance to crack my copy yesterday, and I folded the corner of that page in particular, with a little note to SWMBO that I thought this would be a good addition to our dining room…The style of this thing is fantastic. Honestly I need something similar to this, but a LOT bigger. I could triple the width, and bring the depth to say 18” and I would be ready to go. I may have to sketch this up in Sketchup. I need to learn how to append measurements / text into Sketchup so I don’t have to re measure what I have drawn every time though…

This is the style I really like to work in.

I see you have cauls, and glue squeeze out. How are you keeping the two from combining?

Wax paper usually does the trick.
