Very nice work!

Since you are calling this a hutch for your wife, I’m assuming she goes into the bottom section? :-)

Very nice! I wish I was into that design style. Norm made a bunch of that stuff earlier on in NYW. In the future, for projects of that size, I wouldn’t buy my lumber at a big box store. It’s worth shopping the board foot price around. That hutch probably cost you at least 33% more that it should have. When you figure all of the blood, sweat, and tears that go into a project that nice, it really helps me to know that I didn’t pay a lot for that muffler.
