Bottom Half of a Hutch for the “TOYMO”

Top Ill whip out this weekend I suppose… bought the wood this morning…

Its all Red Oak… I took alot of photo’s of the build but using “ME” to post pictures SUCKS so Ill update and blog again once I find a free place to dump my pictures that is not as painful as the apple site.

The Legs are turned from a layup of red oak they are 3.5” square and are about 34.5” tall… Learned that the box store is again really not the best place to buy wood but I’m an idiot…. So there is alot of of miss matching with the oak plywood (most of the carcass is 3/4 ply). The plan is from an old “Wood” Magizine (Mar 2008) kinda… I am not joe biscuit woodworker so I made it all Mortice and Tenon.. the tops of the shelves are locked in by 2 47”x4”x3/4 oak that is dove tailed into the tops of the legs… This should last a long time. Turned the legs and the pulls (ohhh Pulls are out of a piece of rosewood I had laying around).

Finished in golden oak waterbased (Minwax), Then Brushed General Finishes satin, and the top was done the same but with a General Finish “Gel” clear… like a french polish (looks nice).. I rubbed it all out with some paste wax and 4-O steel wool casue the wife decided it looked to “new” for this old house.

Most complex piece Ive made that Ive shared…
