Product Description

A pie safe was a piece of furniture designed to store pies and other food items. This was a normal household item and used regularly as a place to allow pies and other baked goods a place to cool. It was considered an important part of the American household starting in the 1700s and continuing through the 1800s. The pie safe was used to store not only pies, but also meat, bread, and other perishables, protecting them from gnats, rodents and insects.

A pie safe is made of wood and about the same size as a large dresser. It normally has two hinged doors on the front. These doors, and usually the sides, are ventilated either with tin plates with punched holes, or screens. The holes in the tin are often punched to produce a simple shape, or something more intricate like a church scene.

The Hochstetler Furniture line is custom made on demand. Paul Hochstetler custom builds each piece out of his workshop in Eastern Ohio. Due to this, shipping for each item can take between 8 to 12 weeks to arrive.


As members of the Amish faith, the Hochstetler family lived their lives without electricity, a refrigerator, or modern transportation in a small Amish community in Ohio. They grew vegetables in a garden, raised their own livestock, and stored canned food and milk in dry cellars. It was their way of life—a simple life reflective of a simpler time.

In 2012, Paul and Mary, along with two other families—Amish neighbors—joined the LDS Church. As both Paul and Mary attest, "The Book of Mormon and the message of the Restored Gospel have changed our lives, forever."

Since joining the Church, Paul and Mary have faithfully raised their family in the LDS faith. Even though Paul is no longer considered an Amish craftsman, his skills continue to earn him a reputation as an expert artisan.

About the Author

Hochstetler Furnishings - The Kirtland Series

Paul Hochstetler is a premier designer and builder of handmade furniture in the heart of the Amish community of Eastern Ohio. In 2012, Paul and his wife, Mary Hochstetler, joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints along with several of their children and two other Amish families. Even though Paul's business was dramatically affected by that decision, he continues to design and build in the modest furniture shop next to his home. Each piece is personally handcrafted in Paul's shop and reflects the beautiful joining of his Amish upbringing with the celebration of early Church history.

Paul and his family often travel to Kirtland, Ohio and feel a special bond with the early Kirtland saints, and a connection to their way of life. Paul and Mary hope to bring a small reminder of that special time in the Church into the homes of LDS families by creating The Kirtland Series, a special collection of furniture pieces crafted in the Shaker style that was prevalent in early 19th century Kirtland.
