  • 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.

                    My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....

                    I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

                    Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

                    The VacuFlo actually uses...

                    I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
                    Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
