This is a China Hutch I made for a customer. I built it in 5 separate cabinets and assembled them on-site. The thing is huge(9’ tall x 14’ long) I couldn’t even find an angle to fit it all in a photo. They also wanted a drawer in the toekick for their dog bowls so I included a photo of that as well. Took a long time to complete but turned out really well. There are also 4 puck lights in the upper cabinet and tape lighting recessed into a groove in the top of the upper cabinet. Not sure if you can really notice during the day, though. Hope you guys like it!

That is a beautiful built-in. Hope they appreciate it and they paid well ;) I actually like the toe kick dog bowl storage too.

Gorgeous. The finish is very nice. What did you do to get that nice dark color on the maple? I was thinking of trying a maple hutch, dark, to match a table. But I’m a little nervous about trying to stain maple dark like that.

Thanks, guys. The finishing was done by a pre-finish company and I know they had a lot of problems with the dark stain. In particular trying to hide all the marks from the orbital sander. It looks good from a distance but you can still see some swirls if you’re looking for them up close.
