Warm weather on the way, starting to make the koozies again. This time for friends who helped cutting up trees from previous storm last fall. They commented on the one I was using so I thought this would be a good gift of appreciation. The Hawaiian Macadamia nut log was purchased on line for a friend who was raised in Hawaii before moving back to Illinois, thought that was fitting for him. The rest are from the logs. A strip of foam weather stripping keeps it snug. Whatever your pleasure is, a cold one works well in these. Thanks for looking.

These are cool, much better than those rubber foam ones. They’ll last longer, too. I’m going to have to make some of these.

Great idea, I can make these beverage holders without worrying about having to put a special liquid proof
finish on the inside. I can either make them on the lathe, or use my big bandsaw and cut them from a chunk
of wood. Thank you for sharing.
