This is my largest piece of furniture made so far. It’s all oak except the carcass which is 3/4” cabinet grade plywood. The biggest challenge was fighting the cold weather since it’s been in the single digits quote often lately. But in the end I’m happy with end result even though there are a few minor mistakes within the piece.

Very well done Ryan! I’m sure your mother is proud of the gift, and proud of her son! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

I like it! And so will your mother! FWIW, my parents looked at a custom china hutch back in the ‘80’s- $4K! Don’t remember what wood but it was expensive.

Very nice build, great work on this. I’m sure your mother will cherish this. As for mistakes, every project has them, so don’t sweat them. Nice work.

How did you attach the hutch to the base cabinet?

The hutch is actually just floating on the top. It’s surprisingly sturdy and the weight doesn’t allow it to move unless you really want it to.
