It started as a pie safe as I remember as a kid. My Grandma was always baking and with a house full of grandkids, she utilized her safe. As I progressed I decided to use copper for the panels, and no real desire to punch holes. Alder and walnut were used, as they seem complimentary. 5 feet tall, with 5 shelves. Beeswax finish after oil. I use a slightly smaller version of this for towels in my bathroom.

Beautiful piece, looks like it could be 100 years old and in mint condition.

Wow is right. I love that cabinet. My Grandparents had one too. I really liked it and didn’t give it much thought until this post. I might have to put one of them on my TO DO LIST.
