Here’s a quick project for the gentleman my son bought his new house from. He saw the koozies my son and I were using and he thought they were the coolest thing. He says he loves his beer and he loves his pot. He’s a good guy so I decided he should have one. It’s made of Osage and finished with polyurethane.
There was enough Osage to make a small bowl with lid so I’ll give him that too. He can put his pot in there or whatever.
A couple beers and a smoke and he’ll be on his way. LOL.

Thanks pottz. You’re right, when they see what I’m using they get jealous.

Tony, I almost ended up without the bark on them. The branch was so out of round that by the time it finally got round there wasn’t much left.

Thanks Dave, they sure turn a lot of heads.

Thanks Mel. The natural bark look gives it the out-doors y look.

Nice work on both pieces, Dave. I love Osage orange to work with. The grain jumps out when you put a finish to it.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks Ivan.

Rich1955 thanks. The imperfections are the eye appeal.

Hi Jim. The grain sure jumps out with a finish. Only thing is it seems like I get more dust when turning than shavings, even with sharp tools.
