Just finished today. This hutch is based on the one Norm of the New Yankee Workshop built but modified to match my needs. It is about 7 feet long and made of red oak hard wood and ply and a replaceable hardboard top. The base cabinet has drawers and two slideout trays on each side. The center section has one long drawer and storage underneath. All the drawers have adjustable dividers so they can be changed to adapt to my needs. I think I’ll take a break from shop projects and build some furniture for the house now that the major benches are complete.

Thanks for looking.

Now thats what I call organized! Although its not the best characteristic to have as a woodworker, if my shop isn’t organized and clean, I can’t seem to get my zen feeling and work comfortably. Very nice layout of your shop and great shop furniture. Once I build my new dedicated shop and move out of my two car garage I will be building furniture like this for my shop too.

Thanks for sharing,

All of your shop projects look fantastic! What finish are you applying to these cabinets? Also, did you apply a finish to the hardboard tops or just leave them as they came?

Great piece and very nice shop.

How many Sqr ft is it? It looks about the same as mine, only MUCH MUCH cleaner.

The only time mine has looked that organized is when I’ve got a old friend coming into town and i want to show off or when I’ve had no new projects to work on for weeks (and than almost never happens). :)

I love seeing how other people organize. it always inspires me….to some day do the same

Stellar job on the hutch, Rick (catchy name ain’t it ?). It works perfect with all the rest of your shop layout.
Great craftsmanship….I too like a nice, clean shop to work in….Building shop furniture is one of my favorite things to do…..I built all of mine, and need some more…..:). Keep up the great work, and carry on…..
