We needed a cupboard to store all of our canned goods from last summers garden and had a couple pallets and old window frames collecting dust in the barn. It was a pretty straight forward build that I just free handed with no real plan in mind.

I called it a Hoosier pie safe bc that was the look I was going for and well I can since I live in Indiana. The hardware came off an old turn of the last century barn on our property and I filled the windows in with chicken wire.

I also added a picture of our garden to show why we needed the cupboard. It was bountiful.

Thanks for looking. PoohBaah

Killer job. I like the rustic look and use of chicken wire.

That’s not a garden, that’s a farm! Of course I live in Wales and land is scarce here. Maybe Indiana gardens are a bit bigger. Nice cabinet and a really useful one, too. really nice.

I probably enjoy my garden as much or more than woodworking, however the last three years of drouth have curtailed my food output. I like the look of your pantry. I built one last year for our cellar. My calculations for installation were a little off, we had to completely remove the cellar steps and let it straight down. It fit fine once in the cellar. Hope you fill your pantry again this year, nothing like home grown.

Actually Knothead the pies are in the jars. Just need to put in a crust and bake.

Bubbaw last summer we actually had the best garden we we have ever had. It was just the perfect weather and right amount of rain. It will be hard to beat this year.
