I always loved pie safes and this is a real nifty one. The copper is a very unique idea.

I like pie safes and want to make one someday. I really like how the finish turned out, what did you use?

A very nice pie safe indeed, the finish on the wood complements the copper panels beautifully! Your nephew and his wife are very lucky!

mmmmm piiiiieeee …. safe. No pie can be kept safe from this belly! LOL

Nicely done though. Nice finish on a challenging wood.

Dean,

Great job on the pie safe. It sure caught my eye! I made this a few months ago.

My wife has requested another one that I am just getting started on. I am looking forward to seeing how the second one goes based on what I learned while building the first one.

Again, congratulations on a wonderful job.

Great job Dean! I also built a couple pie safes from cherry and posted pictures of them. I purchased my tin from Country Accents the quality on yours looks very similar.

Very nice job on that. It looks like it came right out of the 20’s. Nice detail. I remember seeing those years ago when some of the older ladies still had theirs. Now I’m one of the older ones and I remember them.
You are making me humgry. I can taste the fresh cherry pies that I used to see in them.

thank you for sharing!

Pine & shellac, can’t beat the look. Looks like the one in my grandmother’s kitchen when I was a boy, long ago.

Have your say...
