Adjustable shelving would no doubt have appealed to Shaker furniture makers. The feature gives a cabinet flexibility, adapting to changing needs and enabling the user to organize space most efficiently. The shelves can be held in place with shelf supports that fit in holes drilled in the stiles, as shown at right. Another option is shop-made wooden corner strips (below), which are dadoed and attached to the interior corners of the pie safe to hold up the shelving.

A metal shelf support pin is being screwed into a threaded sleeve in a pie safe stile. Inserted into drilled holes at evenly spaced intervals from the bottom to the top of the cabinet, the sleeves allow the pins— and shelves—to be installed at virtually any height inside the safe.
