This is a pie safe made as a gift for a coworkers wife. All solid wood construction, cherry and poplar secondary woods. Copper panels were purchased at VanDykes. Finish is a dark Cabernet exterior and clear coated interior. A secret compartment was placed between drawers as a divider.

Very pretty. You should have put a padlock on it to keep the pies safe!

That really looks great. I have made a couple in pine with tin panels. I agree with Bob above – the copper was an excellent choice, especially with the color of the exterior wood.

I was going to say what about blueberry pies, but I see someone already beat me to it with the apple pie comment. Oh well. Looks great!

I like it. I’ve been planning to make one of these and can’t decide whether to put the drawers at the top or the bottom. I can see arguements for either way but I like the look of them at the bottom. Nice project
