During the drying stages of other projects I have being built, I have to keep myself busy or nothing will get done. And this time was no exception. While my sea shells were in their many drying stages I began this project, along with a couple others. But, this is a one of a kind for me.

Everyone loves the game Plinko on The Price is Right, RIGHT?

This is my version of the game but using as a bottle opener. The opener is Brass, the pegs are 2.5” finish nails, the area where the caps fall through I covered in a sheet of plexiglass to keep the caps in the game at all times. I only put two slots in the bottom with a lip and a middle separator so when the caps fall through they don’t just land on the floor and the caps may be easily removed if too many drinkers are in the house. lol

I plan to give this to one of my classmates from my 1975 graduating class at TCHS for Christmas this year as a surprise. They haven’t a clue it’s coming.

As always with any project I make I make my mark somewhere on the project and inlay a penny of the year it’s made.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
