I've seen some really nice pics with coconut houses for adult T's.
I bought some coconuts today. How on earth do I cut them ? With what ?
Or do I go the the hardware store and act "dumb blonde chick" ??
If they have the green outter shell, then you will have to hack away at it and start peeling to get to the inside. if it is the inside, the brown shell, then a bitchers knife or a machette will work to crack that. At least in my experience. You might be able to do it with a hammer too.
We don't have Petco's here and I have never seen them sold at our LPS.
It's an old brown coconut - we dont get the green ones here. I reckon I'm gonna try a hand saw or a circular saw tomorrow :?
Would like a nice smooth cut like this ...
Hammer a large nail into one or two of the "eyes" on the coconut. The "eyes" are the three dark spots on the more rounded end of the coconut. Draw a line (literally or figuratively) around the coconut, this is where you will cut with a hack saw. Make sure you cut to the size you want the opening to be. Then use a very sturdy knife or less dangerous instrument like a screwdriver to pry the meat outta the shell. Wash well and dry for a few days. Taking the meat out will be the longest part of doing this.
