Build a future heirloom from these printed plans. If you appreciate the subtle beauty of handcrafted furniture, you’ll love building your own version of our Country Pine Hutch with this printed plan and helpful companion article from Fine Woodworking magazine.
Traditional Design. With its open top and decorative side cutouts, this classic cabinet traces its design roots back to the 17th century. It relies primarily on nails for strength. The box-joined top, dadoed shelves, bottom, and counter are fixed with nails through the sides, and nailed face frames and cross struts reinforce the structure.
Crafted using hand tools. Construction is straightforward and a great vehicle for the hand-tool lover. You’ll see how furniture maker Andrew Hunter built his version without a single power tool, relying completely on hand tools - chisels, handplanes, and saws.
No power tools? More power to you... Working on this project, you will expand your arsenal of hand-tool skills and enjoy the satisfaction of completing this beautiful piece using age-old techniques. Order your plan now.
