Gluing the front and back to the sides

Prepare the rails of the front and back of the pie safe as you would for the sides (page 92) and also cut a mullion for the back frame. Cut tenons at the ends of the mullion and rout or chisel out matching mortises on the edges of the back frame rails. Then glue the pieces together, using a long bar clamp to secure the joints. Set the side frames inside-face up on your shop floor and spread some glue on all the contacting surfaces between the side frames and the front and back. Fit the back frame tenons into their mortises in one of the sides (left), then install the front frame the same way. Finally, set the remaining side frame on top.
