  • Soft Serve Ice Cream Cone

    Anyone for some ice cream? Well, maybe not the real thing, but how about an ice cream cone stand up puzzle. I was playing around with the idea with my pencil and paper and came up with this project. I cut mine from 3/4" pine. I was going to leave it unfinished, but then I thought it might look better with some color. I chose strawberry for the flavor, but if you cut it you can use any flavor you prefer. I used a wash of acrylic paint for the ice cream. The cone is just the natural wood dipped in mineral oil and shellacked -- sort of looks like the old fashioned waffle cone. Kids might enjoy assembling this, and they won't gain any calories. Hope you enjoy it, and I'd love to see your flavors if you care to post some pictures.

                Thanks for another good one Al. I grabbed a copy and may cut them for my granddaughters class ( if there are not too many kids in it) and let them paint them as an art project.

                          You are too kind & very creative. I saw the puzzle last night and downloaded it. I got up & cut it at 6 this morning - and gave it to my secretary for her little girl this morning. She LOVED it. So, you not only did a nice thing on the give away your gift has already traveled on and it giving quite some delight to a mom and a happy little 6 year old. They will be painting this weekend.

                          Good day to you!

                            Thanks for all the nice comments. Glad to see the idea of cutting a group of these for the kids' class. And, John, I know the feeling about the urge to cut an intriguing pattern. I felt the same way when I first got the idea for the cone and drew it. Couldn't wait to cut it out. Thanks for passing the fun along to others.

                                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
