Office Hutch...

The same people that had me cover there basement sink and butcher block table with a cabinet surround and do some wainscoting in their hallway and stairs had me make them a hutch for their office.

We talked about it for a while and did most of the designing through email and came up with this rendering I did on eCabs.



It was to be made out of Sapele' and stained and cleared in a color as close to the desktop they had in the room. Here are a few shots with my crappy cell phone in the shop while it was coming along.







After assembly I had the real camera with me and took a shot in the shop. Not the best lighting or angle. But gives you the idea of the hutch.



And here it is in the home office. The client loves it. So glad, I really didn't want to build it over again.

The two pcs are held together with screws. If it was a single pc it would have never made it into the room. As it was, Both pcs had to go in the room in the vertical position because the doorway into the office came off a hallway so it was a sharp corner. I was a bit worried when I got there. If the hutch was longer than 80" I think we might have been in trouble, but it was 71" measured across the crown so it was just a small hassle to get it into the room.

Nicely done. Looks good next to the desk. Are the shelves under the equipment a drop in, like on shelf clips or are they fixed? Are they there primarily so the equipment doesn't sit on the cabinet top?

They are roll out shelves to get access to the wires and work on them if necessary. That was one of the primary things they wanted. I thought about putting in a permanent shelf similar to those in the center area to balance it out. But decided against it because you would loose flat countertop space which is already scarce in this pc.

Wonderful, obviously professional work as usual Leo. I agree, the combo of the surround and desk makes an elegant office.
