The first two of these pie safes were built twenty years ago. One has inset doors and the other closes against the face frame. The last one was built about 3 years ago. I had just started playing with the two tone coloring and I am still not too sure about it. If you can’t tell from most of my pictures I sorta lean toward traditional and reproduction furniture. I am working on opening my mind to other things, and I have no problem building what people want, but left to my own devices I like traditional looking furniture. The design in the tin is my own design and I hand punch all of them. Between arthritis and nerve damage I am getting a little slower. I’ll post pictures later of the safes that I built and sold wholesale, they used pre-punched tin to save on time and to keep what I punched for retail.

I’m trying to find all of my pictures. Unfortunately I have moved a few times in the last twenty years so the older pieces took with a film camera are kinda spread out. We have four computers that have pictures and I don’t mess with the two that are my wife’s so I have to wait for her.
