Scott's Pie Safe

CHERRY PIE SAFE
Figured cherry and punched tin panels add to its beauty.

SHOP OWNER: Scott Perry
LOCATION: Douglassville, PA

    I finished this as a Christmas present for my wife a couple years ago. This pie safe is loosely based on a design I saw in American Woodworker a number of years ago. The rails and stiles are all quartersawn cherry, and the curly cherry panels are resawn and bookmatched between sides. The drawer fronts are also bookmatched curly cherry. All secondary wood is poplar.

    The construction is mostly mortise and tenon (pinned where appropriate for structural or aesthetic reasons) and double mortise and tenon joinery. The face frame attaches with a tongue and groove joint.

  Punched Tin Panel

    The punched tin panels, a pattern my wife picked, were a design from Country Accents, each containing over 1850 holes! The turned knobs are from some scrap cherry I had on hand.
    The interior received several coats of very light blue oil-based paint, as did the shiplapped boards for the back. The exterior finish is simply Danish oil and wax.
