When it comes to utility, few projects can equal the multi-functional capacity of the hutch. In the living room, dining room, or family room, no piece better combines ample storage space with a generous display area. Although we tend to think of large projects as being complex and difficult to build, the design of this hutch is probably as elemental as a large piece can get. Excepting the 1/4-in. plywood for the base section back and the drawer bottoms, all the board stock is just 3/4-in thick no. 2 pine. Perhaps best of all, you don´t need a shop full of costly equipment to build this project. When the author built the hutch, all he had was a Shopsmith multi-tool, though a router would also been helpful. Most of the work was accomplished using just the table saw; the Shopsmith scroll saw attachment was used to cut the classic whale-tail scroll profile in the upper section sides. A thickness planer isn´t required. Unlike much large casework, if you aren´t rich in clamps, you can still build this project. By purchasing pre-glued wide pine you won´t need the array of pipe or bar clamps that edge-gluing work typically requires. And since parts are assembled with finish nails and screws, clamps aren´t needed for the case and upper section assembly.
