Introduction: Ice Cream Pint Lock

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

They
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: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/105519#sthash.8Ra3Doub.dpuf

    Nice!

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

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

    Pints of ice cream don't usually make it into the freezer at my house . . . We're bad at self control. Who knows, maybe this could help!

    I'd tip it upside down and dribble some water into the key slot of the lock so that it freezes and you can't open it till it thaws.....along with the ice cream.
