Well let me first say i am sorry for the poor picture quality. I have been frequentng the site here for a couple of months and finally decided to post this project.
It was a Father’s Day gift i made for a cousin of mine for his dad.
I wanted to make this as close to an original reproduction pie safe so everything started from east tennessee red oak. The corner posts were from some wonderful 8/4 and the rest from 4/4. All of the joints are mortise and tenon my first ever such undertaking and i was pleased witih the outcome. In the past i used pocket screws. I resawed the end panels and glued up the top. The tins were treated in Muratic acid and then stained over. I wanted to do something a little different, sort of a signature, so i put walnut splines in the tops of the doors. The finish is just a simple laquer finish rubbed between coats, over Privincial from Minwax.
I look forward to your comments and i will be posting some other projects in the near future.
Thanks for your time.
