I have a few pieces that I made back in the early 80’s when I first got into WW. This is a pie safe. It now is our drug cabinet and general catch all cabinet. I have glass in the doors but a couple of years ago the wife decided it needed dressing up some and also she didn’t want everything inside showing. She took some material and tacked it to the inside of the windows. Made a whole new look.

It is made of ponderosia pine with a dark walnut finish and sealed with polyurethane.

Nice looking pie safe Dewayne my wife has a couple of old pie safes handed down from her mother I don’t know how old they are but they look old no where near as nice as yours. I like what your wife did with the material in the doors.

Very nice pie safe, I like the country look. The window treatment is a nice finishing touch, pretty elegant.

Thanks for the comments Guys.

If my memory serves me right I used half lap joints and the doors are only 11” wide. With narrow frames they don’t tend to twist. I have made several glued up solid board doors that have twisted. It has to be the joints and narrow frames.
