This is a pie safe I built last winter/spring. The plans came from I altered a few things to make it my own but stuck to the plans pretty close.

I signed up to take a woodworking class to have something to get me out of the house during the long winters here and I loved it. I definitely have a new hobby! Critiques are welcome!

Looks good. Well done.

Lovely work kjoowens. Wood selection is appealing, joinery looks very tight, proportionally its a gorgeous piece and I’m sure admired by anyone one who sees it. Mortice & tenon, frame & panel, drawers, crown molding all on your first project…WOW! Very impressive. Would love to see this project from a few more angles and with the doors and drawers opened.
