Handmade Custom Dining Room Hutch Featuring Antiqued Gold Finish , Vintaged Mirrored Doors and Glass ShelvesThis week in our wood shop we reserved extra time to build a very custom dining
room hutch that will be finished in a vintage gold glaze with a satin lacquer top coat.
Other features of this piece will be oxidized mirrored door panels, clear mirrored backs
and glass shelves. There are so many little moulding details that this piece will

One of the best ways to glue small mouldings is using C clamps that are stretched

wood that we build the piece in ) and glue that matches the wood color and
Well, it's Thursday evening so time to call it a day.
To be continued.... finally part 2.
The doors are all assembled and ready for to be hinged.
The only thing missing are the 2 small drawers but we are waiting till the client
picks hardware to know how to assemble them. The panels are going to be a
antiqued mirror and we need to pre-drill the holes.
Part 3... finishing.
