Project Information

I have not posted for a while because I have been working on this. The project, on and off has taken two years, but it's been the main thing since Christmas 2010.

All has been hand made, apart from a bit of routing and the trusty band saw. i didn't turn the columns as I have no lathe. Timber is pine and beech. The piece weighs a tonne; thank god I didn't make it all in hard wood, or it would be able to withstand a thermo-nuclear attack, and more to rhe point, be immoveable.

If you want more details on how it was all done, here's a link to a Facebook album. The comments are made for the lay person, not the serious woodworker who will know it all just from the pics:

I hope that you enjoy looking at the piece. A photo of the chunk of c* that it replaces is also provided for comparison.

I find the choice of name interesting i would call it a hutch but that maters not I do like the design a great deal and would make one for my mom if her kitchen would hold it but it wont the piece wont match my wife's decor but it is a real nice piece I cant imagine working on a project for two years id have broken out the power tools after a week I do like hand work but i do have to produce when i set the shop up it has to produce or the wife will reclaim the shop as a garage and i will be out in the cold power tools and all I give this 5 out of 5 on my star scale

Thanks for the nice comments.

On the power tool issue, by the time I get them out and set up I can have done the job with a hand tool. The job did use the band saw, drill press, brad nailer, cordless drill/driver and router.

ya thats why my shop has the tools set up all the time i can do anything in a moment it took me a while to claim the shop as my space but once i did that was it and my new shop is more set up every day i just finished the truss on the shed to house the stuff that is not mine from the garage and tools that i don't use just so each tool has a perminate home and is useable every day
