Here is a hutch that I built for my brothers new office. The bottom is open on the left and right for mounting servers and the top will hold the printer, books and other equipment. it is made from white oak with 1/4 plywood for the panels. All of the panels are mortise & tenon and it was mostly assembled with pocket hole screws. This was the first time I used my taper jig for the legs and the first time I made my own crown for the top. I just wanted something without too many curves.
Thanks for looking!

Nice piece. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like that before. I think solid wood legs, tapered would have looked better.

How thick is the top? Is it one piece, or have a baded on edge?

Thanks everyone!
DouginVa, I agree, next time I think I’ll take the time and make them solid!
Don Tikander, it is just 3/4 ply with an oak band to match the rest.
