Hutch


This post isn't really about cooking or baking, but it is about a new piece of the coming kitchen remodel. I've been looking for a hutch or cabinet with some history and character to hold my dishes and silverware. Yesterday I found the perfect piece on Craigslist and today we went and picked it up. Right not it is living in my future baking center, but eventually will be in the main part of the new kitchen, right near the dining area.


Isn't it pretty? I was made 65 years ago in Louisville, Kentucky of Lancaster maple. The fellow I bought it from grew up with it, but it is in such great condition that it looks almost brand new. The logo on the back says "Willett Lancaster maple". I think it is solid wood (weighs enough!) and it is really beautiful.

Randy, I wish I could help you out, but I just bought the hutch and have a spot for it in my new kitchen design. It might be for sale in 30 years or so. There is a place in Louisville, KY that carries similar pieces. You might google them and see if they have another.

I have this exact hutch! Getting ready to refinish it! Unfortunately, I have to sell it as I have no place to put it!
