I made this hutch to match the cabinets in a kitchen I recently built. The style is very simple, as the customer wanted very plain lines with minimal detailing (even at the feet!), but I don’t mind that look at all. It provided an opportunity to make use of a pull-down photo backdrop that I added to my shop. I take far too few pictures of completed projects as I am generally feeling rushed to get them out the door – but I always regret that later on.

Hutch is unstained cherry, with a soapstone countertop, finished with Target Coatings sanding sealer, followed by Target EM6000 Production Lacquer, and topped with Target EM8000 Conversion Varnish (satin).

The soapstone top and hardware selections are a perfect compliment to the cherry.
You did a great job on this piece and should be congratulated on your accomplishment.

The plain lines to which you refer are what make this a beautiful piece. Well done.

Man that’s a great looking hutch! I like the simple lines of it, and the contrast between the cherry and accessories!

Is the upper section attached to the bottom at all? I would think that would be difficult with the soapstone.
