Country Pine Hutch
1h 12m 55s
Access includes complete video series plus all class materials.

Furniture maker Andrew Hunter takes you through the entire process of building a classic pine hutch using traditional hand tools.  Hunter begins by demonstrating how to mill rough lumber using Japanese handplanes, with lessons that are just as useful for Western handplane users.

You’ll learn a variety of traditional furniture-making techniques, including how to craft hand-shaped spindles, how to cut and fit mortise-and-tenon joinery by hand, and how to apply a traditional milk paint finish that instantly imparts the appearance of a centuries-old antique.

Hunter also demonstrates assembly using traditional cut nails, how to make a shiplapped hutch back, and how to craft moldings and frame-and-panel doors.

Enjoy the simple satisfaction of completing this entire piece without a single power tool, and handcraft a future heirloom.

The Class Materials for this workshop include a printable plan and a digital plan for use with SketchUp® software.
