Spread some glue on the contacting surfaces between the corner strips and the stiles of the pie safe, and position each strip, making sure that the dadoes face the interior of the cabinet. To clamp the strips in place, use thin wood scraps slightly longer than the gap between the strips (above). For the shelf supports (represented by dotted lines in the illustration), measure the distance between the front and back stiles of the safe and cut the pieces to fit. Ensure that the supports are wide enough to hold the shelves securely.
