I built this pie safe from pallet material that I picked up over a period of time. I like to recycle wood and find projects that express the woods beauty and history. The wood in the pie safe came from pallets that was used to hold rolls of plastic on. The pie safe was my first project to build out of recycled wood and this is where I learned the importance of woodworking. We all owe it to our history of woodworking to respect and cherish what we have learned and pass it on.

I like it a lot.

I use pallet wood too. I feel better knowing that the wood has a new life. It also allows me work without the worry of wasting expensive wood.

I’ve had recycled pie before. I don’t recommend it. It’s certainly not worthy of being stored in this fine project.

Nice job. I love pallet wood – except when I step on a nail during the reclamation process.

I’d love to see the plans, dimensions, even the hardware list, etc. Thanks for sharing.

sswilcox pie doesn’t last around my house long enough to store anywhere. Thanks for looking.

I will get you the name of the book I got the idea from. I didn’t build it to scale on the plans as for the hardware I buy hardware at yard sales. I have found very good hardware at sales such as that. I very seldom buy new hardware. The finish is my first attempt at fuming and hand rubbing a finish. I’ll get you the name of the book tonight and send it to you. Thanks for looking.
