Looking for a source for punch tine panels, such as can be found in a pie safe.

Looked all over, but not having any luck.

Agree with Don. Vandykes will have the most historically accurate commercially available pieces. They are VERY persistant in the email marketing department and always putting out discounts if you have the time to wait.

agreed, TimL!
Once you’ve placed an order, you get a continuous stream of emails advising of sales. They are, however, the best place to get good restorer’s hardware items. Navigating the site is tricky, and you might miss the item you’re looking for without a painstaking search, so be sure you’ve seen everything!

one of my first projects was a pie safe. i didn’t know what i was doing at the time, i probably should have just purchased the tins. but, i cut them out from some scrap ductwork and punched them myself.

I build a lot of pye safes I punch my own tins from 5 v roofing tin. Also use acid to antique them. I built a template to punch the holes. Quick easy and cheap !!!
