I wasn’t going to post this since it is exactly the same as a bottle opener that I already posted except that this one is tiger maple and the other was walnut. But the grain in this piece of maple looks so nice I had to post it. Holes are drilled with a 1 1/4 in forstner bit. A 1 1/4 in fender washer screws down into the 2nd hole overlapping the 1st hole enough to catch a bottle cap. When I made my prototype I just took a beer bottle out to the shop with me so I would know how deep to drill each hole. I’m going to pick up some leather laces for the lanyard hole. Thanks for looking.
