Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the legs and the sides. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the side pieces. Attach to the legs with glue and 2” pocket hole screws. The back face of the side panel should be flush with the inside of the legs.

Step 2

Cut the piece for the back. Drill pocket holes at each end and attach to the legs using glue and 2” pocket hole screws. The back face of the panel should be flush with the inside of the legs.

Step 3

Cut the pieces for the front stretchers. Drill pocket holes in each end and attach to the legs at the spacing indicated using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the dividers. Attach to the stretchers as shown using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the stretcher into the divider.

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the drawer slide supports. Drill pocket holes in each end and attach to the dividers and to the back with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 5

Cut the piece for the top support. Drill pocket holes in each end and attach to the upper stretcher and the back with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 6

Cut the piece for the top. The front and sides will overlap by ¾”. Secure the top using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the top into the stretchers, sides, and back.

Step 7

Cut the piece for the back of the hutch. Draw a decorative curve on the back and cut out with a jigsaw. Set the Kreg jig for ½” material and drill pocket holes along the bottom edge only. Secure to the top with glue and 1” pocket hole screws.

Step 8

Cut the pieces for the hutch cubby side. The overall piece will be cut at 6-1/4” x 10-1/2”. Cut a decorative curve in the piece with a jigsaw maintaining 4-3/4” at the front edge of the piece. Drill pocket holes in the back edge as well as the bottom edge. Secure to the back piece and the desk top with glue and 1” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the hutch cubby center. Drill pocket holes in the back edge as well as the bottom edge. Secure to the back piece and the desk top with glue and 1” pocket hole screws.
