My wife and I saw this hutch at a store that was selling high-end Adirondack furniture. When they told us the price, I made the mistake of saying “I could build that a lot cheaper.” So that’s how I ended up with this project. There are no fancy joints, it’s all pine and I used biscuit joints and screws with filler over the screw heads, because everything was getting painted. The doors are carved to give the look of raised panels, and the grapes were one of my first relief carvings…my wife still kids me about the ‘square grapes’. The upper doors are lined with regular quarter inch square hardware cloth, and painted with gold spray paint. A little crown molding around the top, and double bead on the back. It stands 79 inches tall, and about 38 inches wide. I managed to achieve the look of the original we saw in the store, but for a third of the price.
