Woodworker: Martin J. Milkovits
As a busy furniture-maker, Milkovits rarely gets time to build anything for himself but did make room in his schedule for this country-style hutch. He designed it to store dinnerware, fit in the space available in his dining room, and match the room’s overall décor. The cherry cupboard is stained a deep reddish-brown for an aged look, glass doors display plates and glassware, the beaded and painted back slats add texture, and the custom hand-forged door hinges contribute to the piece’s classic feel. The finish is Minwax Antique Oil and wax.
