I live in the land of coconuts and they are being used routinely in our recipes. After the cream is retrieved the hard shells are discarded or burnt as fuel. After seeing the nature’s wonderful creation of the hard shell which protects the cream and the tasty water I thought it is criminal to discard the shells and decided to use them for making useful articles. The shape of the shell gives wide choice to use it for different purpose. To begin with I decided to make a ladle and a spoon and later thought of making a tea cup. There are many more things to try and I will do it when I get the appropriate shell shapes. When the coconuts are cracked for culinary purpose they may not crack uniformly . You have to shape them according to your need and that is a bit difficult job because of the hardness of the shells. I have used only hand tools for this project. I posted a similar blog on Garden Tenders but that site looks to be in trouble. Pl see my blog http://gardentenders.com/members/sharad/blog/1910 on GT to know more about coconut.
