It may be colder in some parts of the country, but there’s always time to build up a whole koozie collection for warmer days. As shown off in this video by Fix This Build That, wooden koozies are a simple project that’s great for newbies on the lathe because they don’t take a whole lot of skill to get right.

In principle, the project is as simple as making a wooden cylinder and hollowing it out, but there are some details to consider as well. Most importantly you’ve got to make sure your blank is large enough to fit a can once it’s been turned down, though koozies that are too small for a can might still be able to fit a bottle.

The addition of a bottle opener on the bottom is the final touch to make sure that you’ll never want for anything so long as you have your koozie and a beer (or soda) to fill it.
