Hi snowf7, I am a South Westerner as well. Brr!That sounds like a great idea! It floats with the door, its also nice and light.The rice version is more manual in its operation. It only takes a moment to slide it into place with the side of your foot. When you push it into place you know its nice and tight to the opening. When filled with fluff it just didn't seal well. Two of them stitched to a spacer would have done the job better. Your Velcro design would allow for washing as well. Hmm this may be a project for after the garlic harvest. Still 4000 to go and only one shovel.
That would fill quick but to light and rigid I think. The effect that rice, grain or beans gives seals quite well and stays put.Even during the Southern California earth quakes it didn't move a bit. Maybe being in Southern Ontario had something to do with that though.
Hey Bill For me its more having enough time to do it all in one shot. I don't think it should be a problem. When we make 20 french meat pies we always put the filling in warm and it works fine. This is just a bit taller and the crust is the same mix.
That's fantastic Bill! I look forward to you posting your Instructable. The leaves etc. top it off nicely. I haven't had lunch yet 1:15 pm. Your pie has pushed me over the edge. Sorry to cut this short but I gotta go eat now. Thanks for the update.
Fun idea. The print of this fabric would make a pretty odd looking Dachshund, although people do make coats for their pets.Hope the So Cal earthquakes last week didn't shake you up to badly.

Thanks that means a lot, coming from one with so many amazing Instructables.
There were 15 of us at the homestead for this Canada day long weekend.It was fun to watch every one try to eat this without destroying it.They did quite well when it first came out around 2:30 pm. It was a different story when the left over half came back out around 11:00pm. The munchies had set in by then and it was devoured.

I've always been told, there is no such thing as a "dumb question".My rather lengthy reply could explain to others, why I felt the need to create these.
I'm confused that you're confused.I had to go back and read my Instructable again to see where I erred. In the introduction one of the tools required is,"A tractor with forks to move full barrels to and from the garden" .Now I suspect your confusion may be more a question of why in the world would any one want to do this. That, is a valid question.My garden is more than 500 feet from my barn. The roof surface is at least 5000 sq ft so barrels fill with even a short rain. In the past I've carried watering cans back and forth when the weather turned dry. The past two years have blessed me with 6 to 8 weeks of drought during July an August. That means many many trips back and forth. I'm blessed to have a drilled well as a water supply so I can, and have, run what felt like miles...

That means many many trips back and forth. I'm blessed to have a drilled well as a water supply so I can, and have, run what felt like miles of hose and placed sprinklers through the rows of veggies. Problem is my water is fairly hard and plants don't particularly like it. They stay alive when I use it during drought but when it rains you can almost watch everything grow. I also filter my well water so I prefer not using it for gardening. I also believe collecting rain water is a greener alternative, it falls from the sky or free.I hope this alleviates your confusion. I want you to sleep soundly, I would lay awake worrying If I thought you were loosing sleep over my Instructable.
I realize this is an old Instructable, I just thought I would mention that I linked it in a new one.I made some similar planters when I read this Instructable a few years ago. This year I made water barrel holders with the same design. Thanks for the inspiration. My new project is here https://www.instructables.com/id/Preparing-to-Water-the-Garden/

Nice job.What laser machine did you use?
Nice! Once you put a finish coat on those they'll all look like a million bucks
It was tasty, now just a fond memory. I'm honored to be the first Instructable you commented on.
Ingenious idea.How about one that houses a fan.Dark walnut would look nice as well.
The burger, one of natures most perfect foods.A link to purchase the press might be a nice addition to your Instructable.Nice job.
I have had one of these for 50 years. As a kid I loved it. In my 20's my friends wold stop by to play it, living next door to the beer store made my apartment a popular destination. As a parent I made sure my kids played with it as well. My youngest of 5 kids were twin boys, they would blow peoples minds by each taking control of only one knob and taking the trip to the end and back successfully together. Now they own their own craft brewery and have three available for the bar patrons to play with.Any way, great job!

My pans took quite a while to arrive.You may want to hold off on the beef.Unless of course it's a great deal, then buy and freeze.
Hi Heather,Maybe lining with parchment would help them release from a rigid container.You may have to leave the dough a bit thicker so it will stand while filling.I see the meat confusion. I bought two of those packages and used them both.It's surprising how much those little forms hold. I did have some left over filling, not much though. Having raised 5 kids, leftovers have always welcome. Better than one less than full pie.
When the 5 kids were home I could use the flour in time but these days I just don't use enough even if I freeze it.I didn't notice much difference cutting back on the butter.But I think my heart thanked me at least that's what my loving wife told me.The freezer grater idea is top notch I'll have to remember that.Spring form pies are cool looking for sure.I look forward to seeing yours here one day.
They use activated charcoal, the stuff they use at the hospital if you poison yourself.I found the taste somewhat crisp and bright.Maybe just my imagination. But hey it was a gift.I would like to try the black salt from India some time.They mix pink Himalayan with herbs and spices then bake it until black/brown.I've never seen it in the store so I may have to google it and buy on line.
I wish there was a hard set rule. I find that some places advertise lean and it melts out to be lots of grease in the pan. Others cook up fairly dry.
You can wrap just about anything in a spring form pie and it will look delicious.I'm thinking maybe personal size lasagnas.Ha! I never noticed the metric thing.My Bosch oven is set to Fahrenheit.To tell you the truth I never really caught on to the metric thing fully.I know that 30 Celsius is summer but 350 Fahrenheit has been in the kitchen my entire life, That will never change.I'm in Canada near the US border so depending on what TV station I watch I get either or.
Nice to know it will be a favorite.I don't know if it will go with your Walking Dead Tonic but watching TV and eating pie would be difficult anyway.It looks tasty.

Nicely done!I must make one.
Thank you. I love the look of spring form pies. You can hide just about anything in them.You have quite the collection of Instructables. I especially like the etched spice bottles.
I never thought of it that way. Er, ah, I mean, I meant to do that? (-;Thanks.
I'm glad to have inspired someone. Good luck with your Berries and Cream entry in the pie contest. It is an outstanding Instructable.
Great idea!I must try this.
Thank you so much! I love the look of spring form pies.From scratch recipes are always nice wrapped in them, they're also an excellent way to make leftovers exciting again.I tend to go on a bit when I write Instructables I'm glad someone likes the style, thank you.You have an astounding collection of Instructables.All wonderfully done.Where do you find the time?I was surprised to see a conventional pressure cooker used in your chicken soup recipe.They scare me a bit so I've never used one.I've been using an Instant Pot lately and am blown away with the whole pressure cooker world.Happy instructing
Nicely done!Adding a link to where you purchased the pulls might be helpful to others.

Thanks Penolopy. I think adding the day old mashed potatoes gave a nice clean line to the layers.I must credit my wife for that addition. She makes the best fermented lemon mashed.
Glad you were inspired. Wow a Silverwood form, Atora Suet AND Brittish cook books! You are as ready as anyone can be. My Fat Dadio's form, Dr. Oetker and virtually no measurements is somewhat embarrassing by comparison. I did some research on hot water crust, but Dr. Oetker allowed me to wing it without the effort involved in using expensive ingredients and reading a recipe. Cut in butter, add water knead and roll. Not exactly rocket science. I would love to see you do an instructable showing how the British do it to compare with my Southern Ontario version. Worst case scenario is stew with croutons still delicious.

Point well taken Nancy.This was my first attempt at an instructable and a spring form pie as well.My cooking style is very much an on the fly approach.I just open the fridge and cupboards and start cooking.If its in the fridge it may very well end up in the pot.Quantities are ones personal expression of the art form.I love spice so I add lots, but to tell you to add a table spoon of habanero powder would be wrong of me. Also, I don't use salt when I cook so I guess I should have added "season to taste" as an instruction. You can add it in but you can never take it out. I had five children so quantities = make lots. In fact the pie was just a small part of the end product. It was merely something to make the cooking experience more fun. So another quantity, that of fun = again...

In fact the pie was just a small part of the end product. It was merely something to make the cooking experience more fun. So another quantity, that of fun = again have lots. The rest of the ingredients are being enjoyed still and it has been days since said pie has faded into a distant memory.I do understand, a little late though, what you are saying. I just saw a comfort food contest and thought "Hey I can do that" Then I went into creation mode. After submitting the end product I looked at a few other entries and saw that even making a sandwich or a burger can be documented to the extreme. If I do another Instructable it will be a much more well documented effort. But I think this one begs you to throw aside measuring devices open the fridge and cupboard and have some fun.
Thanks Attosa it was yummy.
