Ice Cream Pint Lock





Introduction: Ice Cream Pint Lock

DIY University Contest

Third Prize in the
DIY University Contest

say that necessity is the mother of invention and while I don’t claim to have invented the idea of a pint lock, this is the first one I’ve ever seen out of the wood. In addition I love how outrageous it looks with that giant old school padlock on it!

This is made with some soft maple, a small brass hinge and the padlock of your choosing! Just make sure that it’s not too heavy, or you will not be able to keep your prize upright! (mine was right on the brink…) - See more at:

    If I did this in my house, my wife would just cut the bottom open with a utility knife!

    and then fill it with water and glue the bottom back on!

    This did little for the security of my dessert, but I did upset my spouse. So there is that! :)

    This is really a beautiful object. It's also hilarious.

    Thanks! I like doing impractical woodworking! :)

    You just made my day :D

    I hear people saying that they cut the bottom of the cup. Well there is an easy fix(well sort of) you take the bottom half of the lock and just add on a wooden hollow drum to the bottom. Still great idea I plan to make it real soon.

    awesome build! i'm gonna show my gf's dad this project. he totally has everything you were using in his shop and loves quirky projects lol

    There's nothing a pair of bull cutters and a torch can't do!!!!
