Tall Hutch – A crib is a shelf-shaped unit that rests on the top of a dining room sideboard. The hutch will often have glass doors over an open area, which is generally level with the top of the buffet cabinet. The crib can sit as far as the buffet or it can be shallower. Often the combination hutch cabinet promotes country-style furniture and the top of the cage is meant to show ceramics and dishes.
Converting a hutch vertex to a library is usually a simple project. Remove the hutch from the base with a screwdriver. Most hutches attach themselves to a metal bar covering the hutch and cabinet. Place the top of the hutch on a work table. With a screwdriver, remove the glass doors from the tall hutch, all hinges, latches, and other hardware. Remove all adjustable shelves and mirrors. Use a putty knife to fill the screw holes with wood filler.

Wipe off any excess mastic. Measure the distance between the top of the cabinet and the first fixed shelf. Most libraries space their tablets 10 inches. Shelf spacing between 8 and 10 inches will house the paperbacks sufficiently. If your fixed shelf prevents the best spacing of shelves then you should remove the shelf to get the most out of your crib. Unscrew or otherwise remove the tray from the tall hutch. Remove any nails protruding.
