Martin Milkovits designed this country hutch featured in Fine Woodworking #189 to store and showcase dinnerwear, so it had to be sturdy. The lower case consists of a frame-and-panel bottom, back, and sides. For maximum strength, the top and sides of the upper case are dovetailed together, and the shelves mate with the sides via tapered sliding dovetails. He also wanted to give it an antiqued look to match existing furniture in his home. And the use of antique glass, turned knobs, hand-forged hardware, and careful staining, contribute to its classic feel. In this video, Milkovits leads a tour of these details for an insiders look at building his country hutch.
