Build a cypress wood pie box with punched metal 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 two-evening class, you will use a table saw, chop saw and other tools to build the basic box, which will have a pull-out shelf to hold the pie. In the sheet metal shop, you will create a decorative punched-metal top, which will allow steam to escape as your pie cools. You have a choice of copper or tin. And, in BARN's commercial kitchen, you will bake a seasonal crusted fruit pie from scratch to carry home and enjoy on a summer evening.
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.
