Build a brand-new antique! This versatile classic goes together fast with biscuit joinery.
- Built of solid oak in a simple, modified-Shaker style, this pie safe blends easily into most any décor. Adjustable shelves and a pair of drawers make it a versatile storage cabinet for more than just cooling off fresh-baked pies. The pierced-tin panels can also provide ventilation for a modern sound system. Or, you can use this cabinet to store clothing and take some of the pressure off an overstuffed closet or bureau.
- Biscuits make the joinery on this project as easy as pie. If you’ve never made a project of this scale before, or are new to biscuit joinery, this is the perfect place to start. You’ll need to know how to make stopped rabbets for the back and dadoes for the drawers, but hanging the flush-fit doors is a breeze with no-mortise hinges.
Oak Pie Safe
This pie safe gives advanced woodworking students the opportunity to employ a number of their skills, including biscuit joinery for edges and corners, making templates, measuring, cutting, marking, gluing, clamping and mitering.
And after you build the pie safe, you’ll learn how to apply stains and finishes to protect the wood and keep it looking beautiful.
