My wife wanted a hutch for the kitchen to display her plates and to store some appliances in the bottom. She also wants to paint it. So I built this from scrap 2×6 lumber. The table top on it is an old piece of pine recovered from an 1870 house so it was finished an kept natural. It has all been put together with loose tenons which were all made using my homemade slot mortiser.

Used my table saw jig to make the raised panels using my dado blade.

I made the handles from Walnut. It slides on maple slides. I put soft close hinges on it also. Now I just have to wait for the wife to paint it.

UP DATE… The wife finally finished it with paint.

Very nice. Did you have the blade tilted or the fence tilted to make those cuts for the raised panels? Thnx in advance.

Roger looks like a angled fence jig in the picture.

Wabi-Sabi!

Sean,

My wife likes painted stuff too. It’s really too nice, lots of character in the wood. But maybe it would take away from the plates?

Is this a Woodgears tool?

thanks. The table saw jig is adjustable and I got the idea from Izzy Swan. The slot mortiser is a woodgears tool.

Great job there. I’ve used “construction” lumber (2×6’s, etc) also, Its kind of an art, trying to use the parts that won’t chip away. You did a great job, though. I don’t really like paint usually, but this piece looks great. (helps that I’m partial to green paint, lol) Projects for the family are the best!
