I posted my pie safe proto-build about 3 months ago. Our Pennsylvania Nephew and Wife requested one and I built it as practice. This one is the second and is going to them. The walnut portion of this safe was built from a single plank 13’ by 13” by 3”. The shelves and back are ash. The tins are beautiful and were ordered custom from a Pennsylvania company by our nephew. Glad to be done with this and ready to do some boxes and turnings…....Thanks for looking..;-J PS, (The proto-build is still posted under my projects)

I’ve always like pie safes. Brings back good memories of fresh-baked fruit pies from my younger days. Your design with the drawer is unique to me—kinda like an upside down armoire. The armoire’s drawer is usually below the shelves. Are the shelves adjustable? Nice job with the project, Joe!

Hey Don,.......The middle shelf is adjustable 4 to 5 inches in height with non-sawtooth notches per Charles Neil’’s vids. We found many examples of the drawers at the top and they decided that was their preference. Luckily they are tall people (kinda) as this thing is 54” tall. Thanks, Joe
