I built this about two years ago to hold all of our nice china and glassware. It is made from solid cherry and MDF plywood fibercore cherry. It is made in two sections (top and bottom) and measures approximately 60” wide, 22” deep (base) and 72” high. It stores much more than it looks.

I used an english chestnut stain and three coats of oil polyurethane to finish it. Before this, though, I treated it with one coat of pre-stain to help the stain absorb evenly. Two nice features are the serving tray pull-outs right above the two side drawers in the hutch base and the double center doors on the bottom for large items.

Very nice John. A hutch like that is next on my list for the little(?) lady. Did you design it yourself or have plans.

Thanks. I designed it myself, but used a similar one from Pottery Barn for the basic structure.
