Handmade Custom Dining Room Hutch Featuring Antiqued Gold Finish , Vintaged Mirrored Doors and Glass Shelves

This 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
need more than the usually production time to complete.

One of the best ways to glue small mouldings is using C clamps that are stretched
a bit to create a bit of tension that holds the corners tightly together until the glue

Working from a picture can be difficult if the size of the piece is almost twice
what is featured in the picture. We like to lay out mouldings to get a actual
reference of the scale in which we will be working.

Our custom wood turner did a simple fluted leg which was perfect for the scale
of this piece.

The carpenters best friend, pipe clamps.

The top is now assembled so the fun can begin.

Now that we have the body of the cabinet built, it's on to building the doors.

A detail of the mouldings... depending on the finish of the piece we will use
a few finish nails to speed up the assembly time. To fill the small holes made
by the finishing nail gun we make a mixture of saw dust ( we use the same
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.
