About Project

Author Notes: 

Remember yesterday's plan for Ashley's beautiful wood Channing desk?   [plans here]

Well ... good news!  The hutch is just as easy to build!
I love how she added magnetic tin to the back to create a attractive and functional back to the hutch.  

Don't Forget!

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Step 1

Channing Desk Hutch

Build the box. Note that if your 1x12s are NOT 11 1/4" wide, you will need to make adjustments as noted in the plan. You can build with 2" countersunk screws or 1 1/4" pocket hole screws but I don't recommend nails because there is no face frame on this one. Check for square.

Step 2

Supports - I added the front one just in case you need extra support. It's also a great spot to hide under cabinet lighting!

All you would have to do is drill a hole for the power cord and hang!  Image from Lowes.
You can attach with 2" countersunk screws or pocket holes. On the top, make sure you also attach to bottom shelf, you can do this with nails and glue.

Step 3

This is optional, but will add some extra support to the center and looks charming.

Step 4

Attach back - be careful - you will need to use 3/4" nails when attaching to the 1x3 support boards.

Step 5

I love these hinges -

Easy to install and work great.  Install at the tops so the shelf is accessible from underneath.  Image from Home Depot.

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
