    Tiger Maple Hutch

    I started this project a year ago and just finished it a couple of weeks ago. The hutch is entirely from tiger maple for exterior wood, pine for the back of the upper section and poplar for the drawer interiors. These pictures are from a week ago and doesn't show all the "hardware" since I still had some pulls to finish (lathe work). The pulls are turned from maple burl and were finished with clear lacquer to contrast to the darker stain (TransTint Honey Amber and Golden Brown) and so that one could still see the detail of the burl. The remainder of the hutch was finished with Minwax satin wiping varnish on the exterior and shellac on the interior. I've never been so glad to get a project done...

    Chris that is a mighty fine looking piece of furniture. I am also planning to build a hutch soon. I like your use of tiger maple. What did you use for the design/plans?

    Hi Chris ,
    Your choice of material is excellent and the tone you have on that maple is so very rich, and enhancing to the piece. Having the back wall look so pearl like in your piece is a real plus too. Great to be done, time to enjoy it!

    Nice Job, Chris. Good use of the Tiger Maple, and I especially like the Book Matched Doors.

    I love not only the design but the wood!!!!

    That finish really brings out the textures of the wood.
    If I were to build that project I would try my best to duplicate what you have there Chris.

    Beautiful work!

    Thanks for the kind words guys! Alex, this hutch was of my own design with influence from others I've seen but, you are welcome to my rudimentary drawings and any other information I can provide.

    Chris, that is certainly "Heirloom Quality"

    I love all the details, the feet are a very nice touch.

    You do good work!
