  • Ice Cream Box

    Here's my version of the ice cream box. Woods used were butternut for the bowl (at least I was told it was butternut), aromatic cedar for the ice cream and yellowheart for the pineapple. I like strawberry ice cream with pineapple chunks and aromatic cedar is easy to sand and I wanted something easy for the first bowl. It was a lot easier to make than I thought!

    All comments welcome!

      Way to go, Charles! I never thought of using cedar for strawberry, or adding pineapple chunks. Now if only we could figure out how to make chocolate syrup!

      The butternut wood for the dish is fantastic. Congratulations on a really successful project! (And I'm glad it was easier than you thought it would be.)

          Thanks for the compliments!

          Wood Dog, I cut another ice cream box with vanilla icing. That was the icing I sanded my fingernail off with. It's coming along nicely. I've also cut 3 cupcakes with 2 icings, just have to think about what kind of icing I want for the 3rd.

          Thanks Carole. Yes, it was MUCH easier that I thought! Even the cupcakes with the ridges were easier!

          Will post photos of the cupcakes when finished.

                    None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                    What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                    The bags seem easier on the surface.
                    But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                    Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                    As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                    I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
