A project. You know you want in on this action!

So the hutch is mostly assembled. Very little glue used, as most of the joins are across grain. All that remains is the lid. At 15.5 inches wide, it will take more than an ordinary plank. As the pin hinges aren't really working right, I may tack on a piece of plywood first, to see if it will work, rather than risk ruining a good board of that width.

The en panels are complicated, the top rail will be attached to the lid, and in this type of chest, bear the pin on which the lid will hinge. Pardon the modern clamp, the hands of the apprentice would normally fill that role. Besides, they didn't have to photograph their work. Mortises in the front and back will hold the side panels. This is the first of four.
