This was an Oak dining room hutch we built for a customer. Approximately 12’-6’’ long. Actually we built 2. The customer wasn’t happy with the color of the first one and it was easier to rebuild it than to respray it. Does anyone need a 12 foot hutch?? lol.

Hi Chris;

Nice project. The “practice” one you made will make a heck of a tool cabinet in your shop. LOL

If you bring clients there, they will either be very impressed, or maybe think your slightly touched. Could go either way.

I hope you got paid for the rebuild.

Beautiful piece. I guess next time you will show the client a color sample and get their final approval first (-:
I agree about the outlet and I would have tried to find a less conspicious place for it.

That’s a beast. I have about a 10 footer coming up, this definitely gives me a couple of ideas.

Beautiful work. Amazingly long. Would you prefer a different word for the “next” one?

Hey guys,

Well the funny thing is we did do a a stain sample for them. The mistake?? Having them pick the color out in our office and not their home. I have never seen colors change from one place in the room to another. At the same time we were building this we were also refinishing there cabinets. The boxes and frames were done in place and the doors and drawer fronts were brought back to the shop for a lacquer toner and clear coat. We were moving around the kitchen and the pre-manufactured finish would literally change and match up to a different color depending on where we were standing in the kitchen. Touch ups had to be done with 4 different minwax stain sticks. It was unbelievable. The “sister” piece is still taking up residency in our Home Center showroom. I think I can off it to my paint supply finish rep with a few modifications, turning it into a flat screen entertainment center. And yes we did change the outlet covers to oak and stained them to match. Thanks for the comments guys.
