I’m glad to bring here another woodworking project I’ve made 1 month ago for a very good friend of mine that is living in Germany due work (architect). So I came up with the idea off making a handy bottle opener with a modern look, inspired in some of his recent designs. As I was planning to make this project I was assuming that I needed to shape also the metal. Although it was a small scale metalworking, it remains a challenge because I had never worked with steel. After I’ve finished it, I started thinking in make by myself the metalwork of my future projects.
For the handle, I’ve used a scrap piece of beech and I’ve finished with mineral oil and some wax, to add more protection.
You can also see here I’ve used a ink transfer technique by iron to put the initials of my friends name.
If you like this project I recommend you to check out the video, where you can see all the steps I’ve done to make this bottle opener.
I hope you enjoy with this as much as I do making it. Don’t forget to leave a comment or any criticism.
