Inspired by Norm and motivated by endless clutter made worse by 3 voluminous but utterly impractical wardrobe cabinets, I set about building a place for my “stuff”. This hutch lives in a small 10×18 area of my shop that will eventually be my finishing room. Right now it is the only heated space in the shop, so its home for a few (7) months.
Materials are 2 layers of scrap cdx glued up, hardboard top, and pine trim. The 1/2” cdx was left over from the shop walls and I had the knobs and plug mold laying around already. Hard to get more budget friendly than that.
The difficulty here was in the use of the glued up cdx. No 2 dados or rabbets are the same width. I would have much preferred quality ply but, I was able to use up a ton of scraps that were taking up space and save a few dollars in the process.
I will cut dividers to fit the upper portion once I figure out where everything goes.
