I wanted a matching corner hutch for the larger hutch we have in our dining room. This piece was built with old pine boards I had in my shop. They were used as supports when I was painting other projects and were covered in old paint. I sanded them up and glued them together and here is the finished product. Fun project and since I re-purposed old wood and leftover stain the whole thing only cost about $5 for some hardware.

Amazing what old support boards can turn into with some vvision and elbow grease . Not to mention the skill of a craftsman. Great job. How did you raise the panels on the doors. Jerry

Very nice, Bernie. I have something very similar in my short-term build schedule, also for a dining room. Good stuff!~

Hi Jerry,
Thank you for the compliment.

I use a set of raised panel door router bits in a router table.

Beautiful hutch, great build. Love the country look, and the contrast between the paint & natural wood shelf. Great looking.

My wife has wanting me to make a corner hutch for awhile. To be honest I don’t have the skill so I’m really impressed with your craftsmanship. I know it sounds funny but I really like the curved cutouts at the bottom where the shelving piece meets the base, that and the bottom that makes up the legs adds some curves to go with the straight edges. Impressive.
