This is the hutch I built for my wife to her specs and given as her Christmas present 2010. It is made of solid pine and she wanted it painted white to match other decor in the kitchen. It was built using my old table saw (Skil 10” with universal motor-sold) and the band saw, router table and other simple (read cheap) tools in my old garage shop mentioned in my shop posting.. Just shows that one doesn’t need fancy (read expensive name brand) tools to make something nice. The only items purchased were the hardware, the rest was shop built including the doors and trim. The joinery included biscuits, dadoes and simple butt joints. By the way this was my first woodworking project since 1967!

I’m sure she will think of something after the move. I know she’s been talking about a gazebo in the back yard where we will be moving.

This looks great. I love the simple but elegant lines of this piece and you did a good job on it.
