  • 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.

                                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
