quilterpurpledog, You forgot - in my original post I stated that I'm cheap. I bought that cone for $3.00. There is an industrial liquidator in my state that I always wanted to visit and I was recently visiting nearby, so I went and bought a few things. Regretfully, they're a couple of hours away and they don't do mail order.

You're right, I looked at Google images and that's exactly what it is. I had no idea.

Good job, and much sturdier than the cheap plastic ones sold in the stores. My cheapie wobbles when the cone gets about half empty. Might just make a run to the local thrift store today!

Clever! I like the look much better than my cast iron stand.

If you have a problem with the cone wobblying when it gets smaller, set it in a large coffee mug. That will hold it straight.
