This is the hutch built to match my sideboard. The Pine log legs are contrasted with dark stained hand planed Alder. Dried willow branched decorate the crown. Natural Pine has been used for shelving and accents. Priced to sell!

I don’t know why exactly, but these appeal to me so much more that some Chippendale or period highboy. That crownwork is just astounding.

If two salient factors weren’t in play, I’d be all over these (1. House is so packed with furniture after merging two households that I can’t even indulge my own desire to try larger scaled work, and 2. Perennially tight budget).

Good luck with the sale.

Just great, Dennis. I really like the color and the twig design around the top. These won’t last long. Excellent, excellent.

Great job Dennis, I wish I had the bucks too. I’d grab that hutch in a nano second. Really pretty buddy. Somehow it doesn’t look rustic to me.

Really nice work Dennis, oh it is rustic allright, “high-end western lodge and big ranches with deep pockets” fine rustic, reminds me alot of Thomas Molesworth’s work on the trim, but you have your own unique style which looks great. Heck you are not too far from his ole neck of the woods, Cody…

Keep up the good work…

Superb! I think the design is on point.
The different woods make for a great color contrast.
Thanks for posting.

WOW. I have a renewed respect for rustic elegance.
