In the kitchen of the Fitch House at Old Sturbridge Village, a “living history” museum in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, Norm shows viewers an early American hutch, known in its day as a cupboard (a hutch was for rabbits). Norm returns to his workshop to build his own model, a modified chest of drawers made of knotty pine, featuring a base cabinet with raised panel doors and an open shelf section topped with a decorative crown-molding detail.
Check out the Classic Kitchen Cabinet video for more tips on drawers and raised panels.
