this was my first project. my wife wanted something she could store excess kitchenware in. growing up, my mother had an antique pie safe. i wanted to build something similar. i had no idea what i was doing, i just looked over the original to see how it was put together and gave it my best shot. it was certainly a learning expirience. knowing what i know now, i realize i built the thing entirely backwards. i started by making the tins, and building the doors around them. next, i built the drawer. i then built the face frame around the drawer front and doors. finally i made the sides and back to match the front. somehow it all came together. my wife loves it, but everytime i walk past it, i shake my head.
