Here are some bottle openers I’ve worked on here and there during the last couple weeks and finished last night. Fun (and quick) to make.

Used a variety of woods: Padauk, Waterfall Bubinga, Indian Rosewood, Osage Orange, Curly Maple (x2), and a couple I couldn’t remember what they were or identify.

Now to find homes for all of them!

Yes! I have a feeling that I will probably be giving some of these away. They make great little gifts.

Very cool. Where did you get the opener hardware?

Thanks! I get it from Home Depot. Simple paint can opener and I cut the last about 1 1/4” off the other end. The idea came to me to use this as an inexpensive source of bottle opener hardware last year when in the shop and opening a beer with one when doing clean-up one night. A lot cheaper than the bottle opener hardware that is sold… With the paint can/bottle opener and small pieces of wood, the cost to make one of these is under $1.

Thanks, I thought that’s what it looked like, but I didn’t remember them having the little nubs on the inside, I will have to try this one!
