Author Notes: 

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

This week, I'm attending the most awesome craft blogging conference, SNAP!  I thank everyone helping others out this week in comments and on our Facebook page in this week of travel or me.  You are too kind.

And this week, a HUGE thank you to Rebecca for working with me to share new media wall plans!  

Don't you just love this media suite?

From Rebecca:

These hutch additions totally make the media suite. The side pieces are more narrow than the whole unit, only about 8 inches. It is perfect for those narrower books, DVD's and lots of fun display space.

The plan is designed with a drawer on the bottom of the shelf. I personally decided not to do drawers, #1 because it required more wood than we had, and #2 because being this narrow, you really would only put remotes or small objects inside. But that is totally up to you!

Make sure you stop over and visit Rebecca at her blog for lots more tips and photos.

Thanks Rebecca!

Cutting Instructions:

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

Start by building the box. You can use either 11/4 ph screws or 2" countersunk screws and glue.

Step 2

These are for support and also act as drawer guides if you use drawers.

Step 3

Build the face frame first if you have a pocket hole jig. Otherwise attach with 2" finish nails and glue. Note to attach face frame to side overhangs are in opposite so you end up with a left and right hutch.

Step 4

Now add the top. Easy step. :)

Step 5

And the back. If you loose the drawer, bring plywood all the way down the back.

Step 6

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.

breakdown plans

Those sketch ups of how to break down the boards are exactly how I end the prep of every project I do. I don't want to buy one extra foot of a board that I don't need if I can help it.
