SIDE FRAME

The pie safe featured in this chapter comprises four frames joined at the corners. Each frame is made with rails and stiles connected with mortise-and-tenons. The side frames are grooved to house floating wood panels. The back frame is divided in half by a mullion and is rabbeted around the inside edges to accommodate fixed back panels. The front frame is made the same way as the sides, with two hinges holding each door to its stiles. To assemble the safe, the side frames are built first and then glued together with the front and back rails.

The top and bottom are solid panels of edge-glued boards. The top is held in place by wood buttons and the bottom is fastened to ledger strips. The solidwood shelves sit on support boards that are held by corner strips. The inside edges of the front frame are rabbeted to accommodate cockbeading.
