This accomplishes a couple of things … it keeps wood chips, sawdust, flies, bees, and wasps out of your cold drink, and uses up some of the scraps that accumulate around the shop.

This was one of the projects Tim Yoder had on his schedule at the 2015 Robust Open House. Thanks, Tim!

Now these look like they are well worth making, and I can see them becoming welcome gifts.
Excellent use of your scraps.

These are a great idea especially this time of year with the bees getting crazy. About a year ago I started making tops for my wooden can koozies for the same reason. Nothing better than a cold bug free drink.

If only I had one of these in my teens and I wouldn’t have been stung on the inside of my bottom lip by the bee hiding in my soda can. Very nice!

Neat idea. I especially like the green and gold (the only true colors any sports fan needs, well, that and Badger red and white). What did you use for dye? I’m still learning about dying woods and those I’ve used so far have not been as vibrant as I would like.

Awesome! We have a lot of turning scraps that would work for that.

That is actually colored plywood that I got from a friend of mine down south … not sure where he got it or who the manufacturer is (could it be SpectraPly?). I just used a cut-off from a pen blank for the handle.
