I built this rustic Pie Safe Pallet Cabinet from up-cycled wood. It features a wire-screen door and two sturdy shelves with three storage slots. I made this using oak boards.

This Pie Safe Pallet Cabinet hearkens back to the old days when pies cooled in wire-screened cabinets.

My son is employed at a tank factory and brought home large 4" x 4" x 4' oak stacker boards that come between pallets of sheet metal. I planed two of these down and removed the rough and weathered outer layer. Next, I ripped them down on my table saw to use as vertical pieces of the frame. The horizontal parts, as well as the shelf supports, were cut from pallet runners. My wife and I work at a large cabinet factory and were able to bring home some discontinued 3/8" quarter-sawn oak slats. I used them for the remaining frame and shelf support pieces. Then I covered the side and top with pallet deck boards. I attached the pallet wood using wood glue and 1 1/4" trim nails.

A Pie Safe Pallet Cabinet has to have a door, right?

I ripped down more of the solid oak to make a small frame for the door. Then, I attached pallet deck boards over them with the screen in between. My only cost was $4 for the hinges and the small price of glue, stain, polyurethane, etc. I stained it Early American and applied one coat of satin poly. It was 44" tall by 18" wide and 18" deep. I listed this on the Facebook garage sale sites and sold it in less than 24 hours for $125.
