Special ordered walnut pie safe. I’ve made over a dozen pie safes mostly out of pouplar and a couple of ceder. I also make my own tins out of 5v roofing tin, the pattern doesen’t show up in these photos. To darken/age the tin i use muratic acid and water about 40/60. I now have 2 made of mulberry.

That’s what we call a fine job.

I love this piece! Great job! I recently built an early Jelly cupboard out of Maple instead of pine, and I was very happy with the result. And your Walnut pie safe takes the cake! Wow!

Great job on your pie safe. The contrast between the walnut & the tin sets the piece off.
