Classic Country Hutch

If your style leans toward the down-home, traditional look of country furniture, then this heirloom hutch is the perfect project.

Aside from a table and a set of chairs, a hutch is an important fixture in any home’s dining room. It provides much-needed storage for dishes and other items and can be a great-looking piece that will tie the whole room together. Since we’ve focused mainly on building stained and finished hardwood hutches in recent years, we decided to mix things up and take a country tilt with this rendition. Made from poplar and birch plywood and then painted and distressed, it’s a unique look for less formal rooms. While the lumber choices keep the price tag under control, that certainly doesn’t mean we skimped on detail. Take a closer look, and you’ll find everything from dovetailed drawers to shop-made cove molding and divided light glass doors.
