Custom Built China Hutch

My daughter asked for a china hutch/cabinet at Christmas. So when we visited in late March we finalized the thoughts and concepts of what she wanted and started building.

The original thought was I would have time to get the base cabinet completed prior to our next trip.

However the cabinet finished with about 2 1/2 weeks left before our trip in May.

So, off to the shop to start the hutch portion of the project.

Applied 6 coats of polyurethane and Done!

Just one problem. With the cover on the truck, to protect from any type of weather for the 8 hour drive, it would not fit in the truck assembled.

Yep, you guessed it, apart it came.

After getting up at 4:00 AM to leave at 5:00 AM, and an 8 hour drive, it was time for re-assemble.

We got it back together in about 2 hours, installed the glass in the doors, attached handles and knobs.

REALLY DONE now!
