« Part 4: More Progress Part 5 of Pie Safe series Part 6: The light at the end of the tunnel. »

My daughter is getting close to being done with the pie safe. She is currently hanging the doors and putting stain on the back. She has put the chains for holding the drop door for the bread box. There have been some minor correctios to be made, but all seems to be going well.

Wow! I like it. I am glad I found your blog. I want to make one very similar in the near future. You should be very proud of such an excellent woodworker.

That is a very impressive piece of work. The stamped/punched tin is very cool. She is a real craftsman (craftswoman?).

Brian, congrats on both projects (pie safe and craftsdaughter)! The piece save looks great. The fluted stiles and angled leg treatments are top-shelf. Those design elements make the piece pop!

Thank you for the compliments. I am proud not just that she is doing it, but has done what it takes to see it complete. I am supervising her, and giving constructive criticism. She thinks that things won’t work well, but I have to urge her to have patience.
