Hey guys. I made a couple of these for Father’s Day and am just now getting to posting them. Made from some scrap walnut and cherry. Used this magnet:

Hi, I’m a co-founder of DropCatch, those look great! Always great to see someone drinking Deschutes as well.

holy huge magnet, batman! capable of holding 40lbs! that’s an awful lot of bottle caps. Does it always catch the caps?

Thank you for posting a picture of the back, not many people do, I have bottle openers and magnets sitting in my shop, I will eventually try making some of these for Christmas presents, I bought .25×1” N52 magnets, I am hoping 2 will be strong enough to hold it against a fridge door.

Kent, thanks for the kind words. Most people would not have the attitude you do towards others making these. I appreciate it.

Kevin, they do catch them every time. I do not think the magnet is overkill. When you put the magnet behind wood it loses some power. I think it is perfect.

Dave, I thought about putting it on a fridge, but even that magnet slips around.

I found the same source for the Magnets , they have just about any size and strength you can think of for any project that can use a magnet plus thier prices seem to very good as well.

Have your say...
