Pi, that unique number that starts 3.14..., really is PI.E, (in mirror image) -- Take a look and see for yourself.
After running across a post about the 'reflective nature' of Pi and Pie ('3.14' is the mirror image of 'PI.E'), I just knew I had to make a Pie that would 'reflect' well on Pi and reveal this relationship. But to do so I needed to create two projects: A special pie pan and a special pie.
Before we get to make yummy pie we need that special pan. A pan that will allow us to mount two opposing acrylic mirrors to showcase the 'reflective' relationship between pie and pi.
The mirrors divide the pie pan which provides the opportunity for two different flavors of pie, one on each half! In this case apple and cherry!
Step 1: Materials and Tools for the Pan
1 - Nine-inch metal pie pan
1 - Another metal pan wide enough to span the pie pan (to cannibalize for sheet metal)
2 - pop rivets (uncoated, 1/8" dia., thin grip range)
1 - 9" x 11" piece of acrylic mirror (1/8" thick)
1 - Scrap Cardboard to make templates
Aviation Snips (sheet metal shears)
Saw (band saw or coping saw; not shown)
1/8" drill bit
Pop Rivet Gun
Scrap wood to drill on
Ruler (not shown)
Eye Protection (not shown)
Gloves (to protect against sheet metal cuts; not shown)
Scrap 1/4" thick material (I used plywood; to bend metal against; not shown)
Circle pattern (to trace a circle the diameter of the Mirror Holder width; a bowl or other round item; or a compass; not shown)
