This is a cherry Pie safe stained dark walnut. It has 3/4 extension under mount KV drawer guilds. It has a linseed oil finish. I sand blasted the galvanized tins and gun blued them.

Oh No theses were bought by the costumer. They were galvanized sheet metal, I sandblasted them and blued them.

Most impressive. I’ve got about 1000 bft of beautiful cherry. I was going to plane some walnut today, I guess I’ll add a few cherry boards to the work list… I live in an old two story farm house so a pie safe would make up for the lack of cabinets. Great job on your project.

The nicest pie safe I’ve seen. I especially like the gun blued tins which gave it a much more subtle look than is usually the case. Really impressive work all around.

Now you need some cherry pies to go in it, and then the circle of neat will be complete.

Did you use a set of plans or come up with your own dimensions? If they are your own dimensions what are they…... and the width of the face frame stiles and rails? Very nice pie safe. Want to build one for my wife as we are out of storage space in our kitchen. Have a ton of cherry and want to make one a little rustic with saw marks, etc. left in the wood with some “live edge” showing…..or one on a Green and Green style.

Thanks in advance…....

Hey cftucker1977
Sorry i haven’t been on for a while. Christmas coming you know and Santa has been busy.
The dimensions are 43.5” x 60” x 18”

The dimensions of the pie safe were reached by the client with my guidance. They wanted it to store a specific size of container so we designed it to serve.

The frame stock was cut to 3” and 1.5”
The top and sides were solid panels with the sides attached flush with the frame and V-grooved.
The doors really were a determining factor in the overall width of the cabinet. The tins purchased by the client were 9”x 14” so that was the solid dimension I had to work from. The door stock was 3” but I might have adjusted that slightly while building the doors to make the tins fit proper. You just have to work in the moment with some things. The client want to ability to remover the tins and replace them with glass in the future so i cut the stiles and rails for glass and simply cut 3/4” strips of cherry about 1/4” thick and pin nailed them behind the tins to hold then in place and that worked great. If you just start laying it out it will come together. I build almost everything as I go. I know plan plan plan is preached but i have found when I plan i get so hung up on the details I never get started. So I get the basic idea in my head and I scratch out base numbers on a sheet of paper an go from there.
LOL its like I tell my kids ” If you can see it in your mind you can achieve it.”
1 sheet of nice cabinet grade 1/2’ ply
and 1 sheet of nice 1/4” ply

I think I used about 40 board feet of cherry

I hope this helps. I will be glad to answer any questions you might have.

I am glad you liked it
