These are a few of the china hutches I have made over the years. The first three cabintes are made of red oak. The corner cabinets are made of birch with a walnut stain. Face frames, side frames, doors and drawer fronts are of 4/4 solid stock. All other parts are cut from sheet stock. All my cabinets were finished with two coats of polyurethane and waxed applied with 000 steel wool.

As always McBridge these are great looking pieces. Are they of your own design? I really like the cathedral tops on the doors on a couple of the works.

Are you lucky enough to have any of them in your own home?

You should be justifiably proud of your craftsmanship.

Thanks For sharing.


ps…ready for turkey season?

Thank you for your comments. All the cabinets are my own design. The built-In was in my California home. Looking forward to turkey season.


No problem with flooding here at all.

God Bless

Very nice hutches.
The wood grain orientation of each and every part of the construction looks smooth and synchronize.
Great job!

Beautiful projects. Love the china hutches, just can’t afford the glass. Always a wonderful piece of furniture. So much junk out there, it’s great to see hand made, solid wood ones, that will last. Thanks…......

Wow! That looks almost identical to the one I bought my wife many years ago. She loved it but we gave it to our daughter when we moved for fear of it breaking on the long trip south. Nicely done.
