After retiring as a social worker I became interested in woodworking. I’ve made several items that I was really proud of but this has been my favorite. For years I’d been wanting a pie safe that was similar to one my grandparents had owned. A few years ago when a friend had her hardwood floor replaced following damage from Hurricane Frederick, she offered me the old flooring. The idea stuck me that I could problably build the piesafe out of this flooring and a couple of oak boards I had in the garage. It was a lot of work, cutting off the tongue and goove and joining the boards together but I’m definitely happy with the results.
