Thought i would go ahead and post this safe as well. This was my first ever pie safe, it was a gift for my sister. I used pocket screws and although very sturdy the screwas were rather unsightly. I was however very happy with the grain on the top and the glueup turned out pretty good. The finish was a waer based poly i I have found very family friendly inthe basement shop durng the wintertime. Again everything started from East TN sawmill lumber. My cousin helped me plane the wood and coined the much often used phrase “man i hate planing wood” but it is part of the process. Hope you like this one. Moving to a walnut version next. I guess i is safe to say i am fnd f these old pieces of furnture.
Thanks for your time.
