Whipped up this bottle opener this morning out of a piece of scrap wood. It uses two 1/4” rare earth magnets – one to catch the removed bottle cap and one to hold the decorative cap on the top. There is a gap between the magnet and the cap on top so that the cap is not held too firmly and can be knocked out by hitting it hard against your palm. I put a 1/4” roundover on all the edges so it feels great in your hand.

Size: 1.75” x 8.5” x 5/8”
Wood: Purpleheart
Finish: BLO and Beall Buffing System with Renaissance Wax.
