Wait, you want a practical project?! Sorry…

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…)

Funny yet practical! They look like ice cream handcuffs!

My problem would be that I cant manage to ever salvage anything out of a pint of ice cream. I typically finish it and end up fetal on the couch for doing so.

Cool project!

Outstanding project, but I am with Stef. I inhale ice cream by the pint so I make my own now.

This wouldn’t stop me from taking a chisel to the exposed area and enjoying your ice cream.

I’d cut the cardboard lid open and eat your ice cream thru the hole, leaving you the empty (yet still locked) carton in the freezer!

This tactic did little for the security of my dessert, but I did upset my spouse quite a bit. So there’s that! :)

In other words, I’m not sure I can recommend trying this! :)

Hilarious.

I can see making this, eating the ice cream, then putting the lock on the carton filled with water – so when they break into it they are disappointed. ha ha.

Kinda cool.

I would have a different tactic. Submerge the padlock in a cup of water. When it freezes solid, either the padlock breaks from ice expansion or at the very least, the person who locked up the ice cream can’t get it open either. :-)

Bwahaha! Boy, I can imagine the words you must’ve got, Peter. Nothing like a locked ice cream for getting given the cold shoulder.
