Great useful gifts made of leftover wood pieces that work great. Purpleheart,Avidore,Bloodwood,Yellowheart,Shedua,Berlinia. Ergonomic shapes and some that resemble flip-flops .All have screws and a rare earth magnet to keep top from running away and hitting the floor.

Nice project! A great gift idea. What I like about this is just screws and a magnet to make it all work.

They would make great office incentive gifts or you could sell them at the beach. Simple and effective, I like that.

I like the addition of the magnet… very practical.

Wish we could get Bell’s here in Colorado!

I have made many of these bottle openers and it never occured to me to put a small magnet to catch the bottle top. This is a sweet addition

I can’t believe it never occurred to me to add a magnet, thanks for the idea. Maybe I’ll add a magnet to the back of the handle to stick it on the fridge or toolbox.

CMW, interesting idea. I have some beer drinking buddies who would get a hoot out of one of those openers. May I ask, where did you get the logos? Those aren’t beer tops are they?

Thanks to all, the rare earth magnets are 3/8×1/16 glued with superglue in countersunk hole. No logos,yes these are actual bottle caps punched out with a one inch punch superglued in a countersunk hole. Also put a 1 inch clock insert( other end away from magnet in a couple of these later after pictures were taken.Thanks, CMW
