Every time that I work on a project I always learn something new. With this it was trying to fit a 48” hutch on top of my assembly table (40”ish) and try to finish it, without hitting the ceiling or lights is not an ideal situation…Fun Fun.
I was not able to put the top and the bottom together till I dropped them of, so I did have my fingers crossed a bit.
Bottom measures 36” in height and 72” in width, 20-21” deep. Top is 48” in height, 68” in width and 14”ish deep. Main carcass were ply and trimmed with Alder. Most of the wood was from 2 -12’, 8/4 Alder slabs that I purchased from http://bahnmanntimber.ca/#in-8 (great guy and fantastic wood).
One request on this was wine storage, after much head scratching I decided that I did not want to clutter the table surface with bottles , so I figured that I could build storage into the hutch apron. With gas hinges, piano hinges and a simple locking mechanism I was able to accomplish this.
This was the first time doing inset doors and they were much easier than I thought. In the future there will be more doors like this in my work.

Thanks Fatman51, I just showed this post to my wife and she pointed out that this was all from Alder slabs not Maple. 99% of my work is maple , its a great wood, but alder is really nice as well..takes any finish plus its cheaper..

What a showpiece! This has ‘that special something’ when all the parts come together with a keen eye for design and attention to detail. It looks to be a functional sideboard, but you have gone well beyond that and made it gorgeous.
