Here is a project I finished in Q4 of last year. It’s a cherry hutch from plans from FWW. The cherry is all select and involved a flitch for a lot of it. The glass is seedglass and is hand rolled as it would have been don in the colonial times (The wife does stained Glass). It took me a year and a half (I moved across country in between) It was for my wife and I really enjoyed making it. The joinery is the festool domino and I used the Sommerfield glass panel bit set and they came out perfect. The picture shows the backside of the glass doors. The drawers are dovetailed cherry fronts and maple sides and bottoms. The hardware is victorian antique. The finish is waterlox sealer and waterlox satin finish.

Excellent hutch and great craftsmanship. The stained glass looks so much better than regular clear glass. I also like the beaded panel in the back. How did you create the beaded panel? I am designing a bookcase for my wife now and want to have a beaded panel back.

The beadboard back is made with cherry boards 5/8” thick and in this case milled in a molder ship lap (see picture) I milled a tenon (3/8”) on the ends and put them in a frame that’s fitted in a rabbit on the back of the case. I started with a full board in the middle and worked my way out left right and milled the edges to fit the opening rhat remained. It looked better than having a piece of one cut on one side. Left plenty of room for lateral movement.
