> It was made with scissors in my shop. I left burrs on the edges to showcase its myog history.
I'm always on the lookout for 'recycled' containers for outdoor use. The Holy Grail will be a fairly vertical-sided pot, with nice rounded corner on the base (easy clean), and a screw or clip lid, and of just the right gauge plastic to be strong enough but not too heavy.
One of the nicest cups I've found recently is a 300ml creme fraiche pot (in Sainsbury's in the UK), which has a handy little transparent window down the side, with fairly accurate graduations; cup and measure in one. The lid is also a nice secure fit, and it's not uncomfortable to drink from (it has a flat rim...and no cut-off burrs...).
The problem with cutting down thin pots like the yogurt pot is that the pot then loses most of its rigidity; this is provided by the flat rim structure at the top of the pot. Of course, if you don't need rigidity, it's not a probelm...
