And it was a surprise too! Had to make this in between other projects without her noticing, but I managed it!

Made from tulip wood and mdf with a sprayed finish. Stands at 7.8×9.5 FT and needless to say it’s already full!

Wow! What a fantastic piece – I would love to see some of the inside of this.

I will assume your wife never ventures into your shop – otherwise I can’t see how you can hide something like this. ;-)

Great job!

Cheers guys!

Was a struggle keeping it a secret but she loves it! Was one of those projects that seemed to take forever due to (stop and start) while managing other work that pays the bills…..

Sorry, no pics of the inside as it’s now full and I’d hate to expose my bad fashion sense (clown costumes etc…)

Thanks for all the nice comments and hope to post more stuff up soon!

You must have some pretty big doors at your place. This wouldn’t fit into most homes at those dimensions.

A buddy waaaaay back in High School built the most gorgeous entertainment center, (smaller than this hutch), only to have to cut it in half to get out of the shop class double doors.

Nice job BTW…the hutch and the surprise.
