You are amazing. I have such a long list of things to make now. Since it's 100+ degrees, I have to wait a few weeks. Keep up your great work!

Love, love, love your blog. Love! You rock. Love! I don't love the cartoon pin-up in this post, however. Still love your blog, gulp! Love!

This is great. But I noticed almost all the plans on this website (including this one) have < 13" width's. What if we want bigger shelves? Would it make sense to get bigger boards given this design? Or should I approach it from a different design?

I am planning to build the Brookstone hutch. The instructions were not specific, but it appears that (3)1X4's were used for the casing. I'm assuming 1X12's would work as well? Preference?

I too would like the complete build and material list for this hutch but the PDF file is not working. All that is there is lot's of symbols and characters.
