Well, she is almost finished. The back is on and there are just minor details left. I was pleased with how the back turned out. I was wanting it to contrast with the rest. My daughter didn’t really want this, but once it was on, she really liked it. Thanks for looking everyone. The next time I post on this, it will be a finished project.

That’s kind of a funny story. A guy that I work with had some tongue and groove that he wasn’t going to use, so I told him I was interested in it. I have seen several pie safes that had that kind of back, so I wanted to try it. The only problem was that they were 16 feet long and I didn’t have a vehicle to haul them. They had also been outside for some time in the weather. This is the reason that I decided to put the back on last, because I had to let the boards dry out. My daughter didn’t want to use them because they were dirty and old looking. But this is why I wanted to use them. Once we had sanded and stained them they looked fabulous to my daughter and we decided to go ahead and use them.
