Pie never makes it inside. I eat it. Nice job on the pie safe. The vent pattern is wonderful.

Great work Pat, I saw one of Norms projects some years back where he built a pie safe. He must have spent days stamping all the tin.

Thanks for the feedback folks, the finish on the piece is a cream colored paint with an antique glaze over that. the tins were left raw so they could develop a patina. Seems to fit in real well with this style. I tag along every once in a while when SWMBO goes to craft/flea market shows and this seems to be a very popular finish. The catalogs we get at home are another great inspiration for ideas of this type. She can usually find something I could make for her.

Hey Pat, as you know I like scrounging for recycled items… sometimes you can find out tin ceiling tiles too for projects like this… just clean and trim to size you need! I’m so lucky as we have a place just two miles from my house that demo’s houses, barns, businesses and they try to recycle 95% of them… a crew goes in and cleans them out, windows, doors, cabinets, tile etc… I’ve found a LOT from that place! Love your projects!!!
