My Take On The Beer Plane Bottle Opener

So this is my take on the Beer Plane Bottle Opener that has been previously posted by Dan and I think originally by Tim. I really liked the way Dan’s turned out so I copied his design the best I could to make sure I’d have something I knew I would like on the first try. Sorry about this Dan but I thought you nailed the design and I had to have something similar. I think I goofed on the scale a bit because it’s pretty unwieldy as a bottle opener. I made the next one quite a bit smaller and it seems to be a little more practically sized. In the second pic, you can get an idea of the scale from one of my favorite bottles to open.
Anyway, this was a fun little project. Thank you Dan and Tim for the idea.

Very nice work. I love the colors.

And you picked a mighty fine bottle of beer to open as well. I’m in Kalamazoo and Bell’s is definitely the hometown favorite!

Nice TOY!

Very nicely done; I presume the bottom lip is a very hard wood?

Will it also work on Widmer Brothers “Brrr” or Deshuttes “Black Butte Porter? These are 2 of my favorite local brews. The Brrr is only seasonal though!

I think we are going to need a “Beer planes of your dreams” Forum soon. :) Nice one Steve!

@ralbuck I respectfully disagree with the TOY comment ;), these are finely tuned tools and are an integral part of a successful weekend day in the shop…well hopefully the end of the day.
