Tinpanel Doors

The doors of the pie safe are joined with the open version of the mor-tise-and-tenon joint used to assemble the cabinet. The reinforcing pegs will prevent the joints from racking, even under the heaviest use. As shown below, you can make the joint on your table saw with a shop-made jig. Once the doors are assembled, they are rabbeted to accept the tin panels (page 108). As shown on page 111, a variety of special punches are available for piercing the panels themselves. Once the panels are installed, the doors can be mounted to the safe with simple butt hinges (page 114).

The doors of the pie safe are assembled with mortise-and-tenons, reinforced by wood pegs. The tin panels sit in rabbets along the inside edges of the doors and are held in place by strips of molding.
