Making the corner strips

You can make four strips, one for each corner of the pie safe, from a single 4-inch-wide board that is long enough to extend from top to bottom of the cabinet. Install a dado head on your table saw and set the width equal to the thickness of the shelf supports you will use. Determine the desired spacing of the notches—typically about 2 inches—and cut two dadoes that distance apart in a miter gauge extension board. Align the left-hand dado with the blades and screw the extension to the gauge with the other dado offset to the right. Cut a 2-inch piece of shelf support stock and fit it into that dado, where it will serve as an indexing key (inset). Cut your first dado about 8 inches from one end—or at whatever height you want your lowest shelf. Cut the second and subsequent dadoes by moving the piece to the right and fitting the previous dado over the key (above). When the dadoes are all cut, rip the board into four 1-inch-wide corner strips.
