Just my version of a bottle cap opener. Gave it to my brother as a thank you for some woodworking tools he just gave me. Made it out of walnut, finished with wipe on poly and paste wax. Thanks for looking.

Great little bottle opener Kevin! I Was at Hobby Lobby a while ago and they had a bag of Rawhide scraps and laces for about $4 bucks. A leather lace would look good looped through the hole in the end of your opener!

Thanks Tony. That’s exactly what I had in mind (rawhide laces) just didn’t know where to get them until now. Thanks for the info.

Looks really nice, have you used two time the same “Foerster” drill?

Awesomeness. My buddy and I are brewing our first batch and I might need to make a couple of these for us for the opening ceremony.

Simple and very praticle. Cool. Epoxy in some rare earth magnets and it will stick to the fridge.

Nice job, my only concern is that it might require a LOT of quality control testing to make sure it operates to standards. I hereby volunteer my services to assist with this arduous work.

Very ingenious idea, using a fender washer!

No problem Hoizbastla. Hopedevil, I appreciate the offer, although my brother has already done adequate QA, and I have also made one for myself, I guess you never can have to much quality control. Thanks Poopiekat I cant take credit though. I based my design off of several I have seen on here.

I typed the wrong size forstner bit. I actually used 1 1/4. Hope that didn’t mess anybody up.

Typing in the wrong size forstner bit is not the reason that everybody is messed up; all this quality control is the real reason. I used to work quality control at a window shop, but this one sounds like a lot more fun.

Thanks Mip, I’m gonna blame my size mistake on quality control. My brother and I are both on vacation this week, so there has been much quality control going on. You know what they say its quality not quantity, but wait maybe it could be both.
