Corner Hutch for my Aunt

I recently made two identical Corner Hutchs for my Aunt out of Red Oak. It was the first time I used biscuits. And the first really large piece of Furniture. I found out the hard way that the angled cuts are critical. The second one went together in half the time of the first. BLO finish followed by a Poly. It’s gone through all 4 seasons at her house and I’m happy to say that there is only the slightest wood movement in one door that was only noticeable by me. Each piece is actually two pieces which makes transport much easier and easily done by one person provided you have a truck!

Very nice. I have had the wood to make one of these, in my garage for over 3 years…....someday?
Well done.

Gshepherd, the crown molding, I’m embarrassed to say, came from a combination of Home Depot and Menards. I was working under a deadline to get them done and broke down and purchased the molding there. The miter cuts proved troublesome at first as I’ve never done molding before, plus the angles on this thing. But a lot of testing and it finally got to the point that it worked out very nicely I think.

Have your say...
