Step 1

Media Hutch with Crown - Tommy Collection

Build the Box. Start by "building the box" Use pieces A as sides and mark out as shown in the below diagram where the shelf will be placed. Attach with 2" nails and glue one of B, nailing through A into the edges of B on both sides.

Step 2

Header. Now add the header piece. Take the longer 1x6, piece C, and nail it to the face of the piece. You will nail through C into the edges of A. Keep all edges flush and square. This is shown below.

Step 3

Back Support. Ignore the cubbies shown below. Let's focus on adding the back support piece, or the shorter 1x6, piece D, inset to the back of the hutch. You will nail through the sides of A into the edges of D, as shown below. Remember, the overall width of the pieces (not including the crown moulding) is 45"

Step 4

Cubbies. Now let's add the cubbies. Each cubby will be space 14" appart, as shown in the below diagram. Nail through the front header and the bottom of the shelf into the edges of E to match the below diagram. Make sure you mark off on the header the measurement to ensure the vertical dividers are square.

Step 5

Side Trim. Now we will add the front side trim pieces. Attach as shown below, keeping the outside edge flush. You will use pieces F.

Step 6

As shown in the below diagram, add the 1x4, piece G, to the top of the hutch, keeping the back edges flush. IMPORTANT NOTE: The 1x4 should overhand each side 2 3/4" NOT 3 1/2" as shown. After adding the 1x4, add the remaining 1x10, piece H, to the front of the top of the hutch to complete the top. Nail both pieces into the vertical cubby dividers. Again, piece H will overhand on each side 2 3/4"

Step 7

Lay the hutch on it's face and check for square. Video of how to check for square is located here. Then add the beadboard. The beadboard lines will run vertical.
8. Flip the piece on it's back and attach the crown moulding per manufacturers specifications.

Step 8

Decide where you would like the remaining shelf. Purchase shelf support brackets and add as desired to complete the piece.

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with putty, sand and finish as desired. Remember, as standard with any hutch, support the hutch to keep from tipping over.
