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.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
