Make a Country Hutch
White pine and simple joinery make this a simple project to build with hand tools
With its open top and decorative side cutouts, this cabinet has its design roots in 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. Construction is straightforward and a great vehicle for the hand-tool lover.
