Antique Pine Hutch
This hutch is a reproduction of a Connecticut River Valley Hutch from the late 18th century. I searched far and wide before finding a good source for the antique white pine lumber. The wood used to build this hutch comes from a barn which was constructed during the civil war - over 130 years ago. Most of the planks were over 15" wide and had beautiful coloring and patina. The overall size of the hutch can be customized to your space requirements.
I also build farm or harvest tables and buffets in matching styles to create an entire room setting.
The upper two shelves are adjustable with a "bird's mouth" system - popular in that time period
The base unit features a single fixed shelf which is 3/4 depth.
The solid plank doors feature dovetailed battens to prevent warping.
All the base joinery is sliding dovetail and mortise and tenon construction.
The backboards are solid wood with ship lap joinery
The piece is finished with multiple coats of shellac, waxed and rubbed to a satin patina.
