Building a kitchen hutch
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the sides for the kitchen hutch. In order to get a professional result, we recommend you mark the cut lines on the 1×10 slats and to get the job done using a jigsaw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Make sure you work with attention, in order to draw the curved lines in a professional manner.
The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the shelves to the structure. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to build the shelves out of 1×10 lumber and to drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats. Fit the slats between the sides and secure them into place using 1 1/4″ screws.
Continue the project by fitting the partitions to the structure, as it can be seen in the diagram. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the components and fit them between the shelves.
Top Tip: Place the partitions equally-spaced and secure them to the shelves using 1 1/4″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and add glue to enhance the bond of the joints. Use a spirit level to make sure the shelves are horizontal and the partitions are plumb.
After building the frame of the kitchen hutch, we recommend you to fit the slats to the back of structure. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats, fit them with attention and lock them into place using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to enhance the rigidity of the joints.
Fit the wooden hangers to the bottom of the hutch, as descried in the diagram. In order to create a rigid structure, drill holes through the sides and fit the hangers. Add glue to lock them into place and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the stand from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Drill pilot holes through the back slat and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs.
