This hutch was made as a christmas gift for my sister. The construction is all poplar solids purchased locally from a sawyer for only 50 cents a board foot,bought 200 board foot for the project. The project was featured in American Woodworker magazine issue #54,I have been waiting a long time to make this project,I love the look of the old stepback cupboards.I finished the cupboard with a warm cherry tone stain and painted hutch, with glazing to pick up the beading.The construction included mortise and tenon doors with walnut pins,rabbeted and pinned drawers all set in a beaded inset face frame.All moldings were hand made,bracket feet with ogee molding,cove transition molding and crown molding cut on table saw with four cut method.This project was made by Mathew Burak originally,who builds traditional furniture and runs a woodworking business in northeastern Vermont.

This is beautiful. Did you experience any problems or issues staining the poplar?
