Build a wooden pie box with punched copper top, make a pie to fill it, and carry them both home. And in the process, gain experience on tools in three BARN studios: Woodworking, Metal Arts and Kitchen Arts.
In this three-evening class, you will use a table saw, chop saw and other tools to build the basic box from cypress. In the sheet metal shop, you will create a decorative punched-metal top, which will allow steam to escape as your pie cools., and a stainless steel drawer to hold the pie. And, in BARN's commercial kitchen, you will bake a pie from scratch to carry home and enjoy, perhaps as a rehearsal for a Thanksgiving pie.
- Beginners are welcome.
- There is an additional materials fee of $49. Please pay at the first session by check or cash.
- Before the class, draw the design you want for the perforated metal cover. For ideas, search Google images for "punched tin" but select a small design that leaves a least a 1-inch border around the 12-inch-square metal you will be decorating.The image shows the type of design that would be suitable.
Instructors: Carol Fiedler Kawaguchi will guide the woodworking phase, Jack Archer the sheet metal work, and Kate McDill, the baking component. Carol is a professional furniture restorer. Jack is the retired owner of a sheet metal business and heads BARN's sheet metal programs. Kate is a member of BARN's Kitchen Arts group, and baking is her passion.
