Well finally finished my china hutch. I posted the buffet portion her Click for details. I definately learned a lot on this project, especially things not to do, 1) never assume the garage floor is flat and level, 2) never rout a dado with the router facing one direction and then turn it facing the opposite way on the next pass (unless you want the dado to be wider than the bit you are using).

It is made from solid knotty alder with popular as the secondary wood for the buffet. Stained dark mahogany with 3 coats of shellac and 4-5 coats of wipe on poly.

Thanks for looking

Hey Bigbuck! Turned out really nice. Sounds like you learned a few things in the process to. I always try to learn something new with each project I do.
