a month or two ago the woodturning club I joined had a good deal on bottle openers from Woodriver. I somewhere around a dozen of them and figured they would be fun to add to the catalog. Well I finally got around to turning a few (after realizing I needed to buy a cone center) I like they way they turned out. I look forward to doing more of them as they are a very fun and quite adaptive project.
The ones pictured here are Maple and Mesquite finished with HUT.

These are also my first real between center projects and I learned a number of new things including working on my parting off skills. I am looking forward to more of these and also the ice cream scoops I purchased so I can practice more of the lathe skills.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Guys.

John, Hope all is going well. If the kids have not gotten bored of the lathe yet these are a great quick project.

Rick I decided the first one I did was for me. I generally try to keep the first of each project that I do. That I way I get the one that is the most screwed up :)
