Latest Bottle Openers

I had the in-laws in town last week, which meant, in between golf and heavy drinking, I got to spend limited time in the shop, for small durations each time. As such, and because I had a ton of small hardwood scraps staring me in the face, I decided to knock out some more gifts.

Special thanks goes out to Brink for sending me the newest addition, the metal plates he designed. These look so much better. If I really cared, I'd have mortised them in so they'd be flat, but I assure you... I don't care.

Anyway, thanks Brink, and thanks everyone else for looking.

Nice. Did you make the opener hardware or find hardware somewhere that works for your purpose? I like the laminated ones. Well, I like them all. But the "lammies" have a cool look.

They're rare earth magnets, so they're strong enough to hold the "display" bottle cap as well as the recently opened cap at the same time. No need to edit whatsoever. I've seen your plane openers and thought it was really cool!

Sorry, I should have been a little more clear. Brink actually made those for me and sent them down, that's how cool of a guy he is.


I need to find some more actually, that I can incorporate in the future.

I didn't realize he actually made those for you. I figured he only came up with the idea. That was very cool of him! They look good.

They are really nice. Of course they would have been better with Brink's metal parts mortised... but you don't care....

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Those are amazing! That's the first time I have ever seen a bottle opener look like that! I love the bottle caps on top! Nice touch. What did you use for adhesive to get the bottle caps to stay? Also, where did you get the hardware for the opener part?

I like the metal plates way more than the screws that you used originally. Awesome work buddy. They look great.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
