  • 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.

                    I'll talk about this specific "slice" of your question. Most Tilting head saws do come from the same Taiwan factory, except Excalibur. So what happened with Excalibur was . . . General got bought by a Chinese investor, some China/Taiwan drama ensued, EX manufacturing moved to China. That...

                    Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

                    It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                    I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                    This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...
