This hutch is based on the one featured in the December/January issue of Wood Magazine. I made a few changes. The hutch is red oak. The shelf inside is adjustable. The hardware is the same as in the magazine except for the door faux hinge extensions, which I made out of walnut and stained them ebony to make them black and match the other hardware. (The magazine had these made of metal). I also made the both tops out of oak plywood with solid wood rails rather than edge glued boards to prevent warping over time. The carcass box is made of good quality sanded pine plywood. The top gallery is different from the magazine article in that I used stained glass end panels as opposed to ceramic tiles, with the mirror in the middle. The stained glass boxes have LED under counter type “puck lights”, there is a switch on the back of the hutch gallery, and as seen in the second picture, the lights shine through the stained glass for an extra splash of color. The finish is sanding sealer and lacquer, two coats each, sprayed. This is being donated to be raffled to a local nursing home’s Alzheimer’s unit for their annual activity fund raiser.

Awesome job! The back-lit glass was a great idea.
