Had a good-sized dogwood fall down at the in-laws house two weeks ago. As the responsibility fell to me, I figured that I might take a bit and see if I could learn a thing or two about harvesting some green bowl blanks. I didn’t realize how much character it would have. I milled up several bowl blanks for drying and decided the scraps were just too interesting to chuck in the trash. By making small 1×1 sticks, it dried very quickly and I was able to glue up a round form. Everything but the oak disk on the bottom came from the same tree. Epoxy coated on the inside and Howard’s Bee’s wax finish on the outside.

Excellent job with that grain. And of course I like the koozie idea.
