    Default Ice cream handle idea.

    Iíve been commissioned by my wife to turn a ice cream handle for a ice cream scoop kit.
    Two problems first I canít wriggle my way out of saying I canít do it.
    That would result in either violence towards me or play zone sold off for $3.47 on eBay.

    Second problem and the more serious one, I canít find any decent pics on google that we like.
    There fairly plan and ordinary looking.
    We generally like stuff thatís is a bit more ornate something like you would have found in a Victoria ice cream shop would be fantastic.
    Iím also aware tho ,that it does have to function and be comfortable in the hand.

    Anyone with any fancy handles kicking around in the kitchen.
    Or maybe even on a tool or something.

    Cheers Matt,

    I'm from the UK. Oneof your Professional turners did a demo at our club and one of the things he producedwas this letter opener. Maybe you can scale up the thickness a little.

    Matt

    These are handles (bottom of post) intended for Japanese kitchen knives. With epoxy glue the are not hard to make. May give you some ideas.

    If you skim through this thread you can see several combinations:

    Composite Knife Handles

    I reckon you can't go past a replica Berg chisel handle, complete with hoops & decal.

    Then, when the #$%&! freezer sets the ice-cream harder than a politician's heart, you can break out the wooden mallet...
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Matt. I prefer a more classic look and feel and allow the timber to be the subject of interest.

    Matt

    The link works OK for me. Just put "composite knife handles" into the search. Try that way.

    I like Skew's idea. You may not be allowed a chisel in the kitchen, but think how much ice cream you could have in the shed.

    Regards

    Matt, the place for ice cream, is Iceland.

    Trust me when I say their ice cream and yoghurt (skyr) is just astounding.

    Erpsstaūir uses its own organic skyr -- possibly the most Icelandic of dairy products -- and coats it with luxurious white chocolate to create a delightful treat. To up the cute factor, the whole thing is shaped like a cow udder and packaged beautifully in colourful wrapping.

    For a wide range of larger resin blanks try Woodturningz.

    I suggest that you do not show Sally as she will fall in love with a colour choice and then you will be forced to purchase that one and a few of their pen blanks to make the shipping worthwhile . . . hint, hint

    Here's a photo of a multi axis ice cream scoop handle I made. It's triangular and very nice to use
