Default Step-back Hutch

This is what results when you make two of everything BUT don't put together the second one until a year later.
All the mortises and tenons are made, the cove molding (not cut to length) and all parts (I think!)
Of course there are no instructions, since I made up the plan myself.

Now I have to figure out what goes where.

Julie, if you can't remember where all the pieces go, at least you have something to show off when you have visitors.... "Look how hard I've been working. Just look at the dadoes, rabbits, etc that I've cut."

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Julie,

It sounds like you missed one teeny-weeny really important step in the plans.. writing them down! (Note to self: try not to do this too many more times yourself!)

Julie,
After such a long time, I wonder if the pieces will still fit together? I would imagine there has been a lot of wood movement since they were milled. Good luck on the re-assembly and be sure to post a pic of the finished product.

Yes, George, I did find that the sliding dovetails in the upper shelves were too wide for their slots. I had to shave them off a bit with chisels and smooth them with sandpaper to get them to fit. That's really all I've done so far. Of course I will not have trouble putting it together, I was joking about being confused about it. But it really is just a pile of many pieces!

I'm hoping Harry doesn't see this post, because he is going to insist that I take photos of the steps of putting it together.

Well, actually bigger, with drawers, and made in two pieces, but similar.

Here is the first one I made last year (not a great photo). It is painted with milk paint, distressed, the back panelling and top is stained. This one I think will just be stained.

Looks like a nice project. Good luck on the re-assembly.

Woodworking is more than a hobby.
It is a journey of discovery,
An application of innovation and creativity,
And an opportunity at self improvement.
