A client recently requested that we add a pair of punched tin panels to her new kitchen cabinets. It didn’t seem too complicated, and time was short so we had at it …. A little practice, a lot of patience and a sharpened, pointed nail set go a long way …. I can see doing more of this …. A little more info and a bunch of other new posts on my blog http://dorsetcustomfurniture.blogspot.com/ . A ‘walk in the woods’, ‘a recycled oak headboard’ and in September, a show by the Guild of Vermont Furnituremakers http://www.vermontfurnituremakers.com/ check out that site for 28 different woodworking styles ….

Very nice. I like your gallery, too. my wife has been asking me to make a pie safe that uses these punched tins as doors. Did you use different nails to get the different sized holes, or did you just punch the nail in different depths? Looks simple to do, but all those holes must be somewhat time consuming.

God Bless,

We used a sharpened, pointed nailset for all the holes, spacing them by eye, and yes, it was somewhat time consuming, particualrly the prep, priming and painting.
