I built two pie safes like this one. You could try the search feature on LJ to find more.

I really enjoyed building mine.

Try a search for “pie safe” in the search feature here. You are going to find some nice ones!

And those are just the first five in the search results!

Pie safe is on my list, for sure. I’m trying to score enough hickory to match my kitchen. Good luck!

Ralphie, Here is a link to the Pie Safe video series that Charles Neil produced. It is long- 17 episodes- but it is well worth the time spent watching how Charles builds one.

+1 on the Charles Neil video series. He is doing a great job explaining them and he has downloads for them also.

Norm built a nice pie safe on New Yankee Workshop years ago. You can get the plans and/or the video. He even covers punching your own tin pattern.

That link is not working for me, but this one does:
