My daughter Melissa found Norm Abrams pie safe on line and asked me if I would build it for her. Dad can never say no so I ordered up the plans. I think that the show that shows his build is coming up soon.
He used pine but I'm using red maple. I'm going to build it according to his plans except where he uses biscuits I'm going with mostly mortise and tenon joints. He tends to use nails when he builds stuff. I'm not a big fan of nails so I'll figure a way around them. I'm going to change the way he made his drawers also.
I'm going to try and punch my own tin panels. Need 6 of them for the doors. I'm having trouble finding the design she wants. She wants an eagle with its talons clutching the flag or something similar. I'm not very crafty and I can't stand tedious work. So if I can find pre-punched panels in her design I may possibly buy them.
Got all the maple planed down, straightened, and ripped to width. Today I had the time to make up the 4 maple panels. 2 for each of the sides as well as getting the top glued up. I think Saturday will be taken up with glue scraping and sanding.
Thanks for following along. Any ideas, comments, suggestions are always appreciated.
