But, when I made a quick sketch of a hutch I wanted to build I was pleased when it actually worked out.
You see, I am much more of a fly by the seat of my pants girl, a trial and error, error, error kind of a person.
I started by making the sides. The hutch is 6 ft. tall, 3 ft tall at the lower "counter" part. I joined the wood side pieces at the bottom with a very straight, hardwood piece since this is what the hutch will be sitting on. I included braces at the top for the top of the hutch, at the 3 ft. mark, and in two other spots for the top hutch shelves. I purposely did not make these shelves equal distances apart. Be sure to make 2 opposite sides, i.e. one that faces left and one that faces right.
