Saw some neat easy to make bottle openers on this site built by another lumberjock so I figured I’d give it a try.
This is actually my second try at it, my first prototype failed miserably, the washer bent in half and couldn’t open a bottle. I had used a brass rivet because I thought it would work out the first try, on the second try I used a screw and two washers because I have a limited number of rivets. The washers still bent slightly, so i glued them down and that seemed to solve it.
Going to make another revision soon with some small changes. Leave the tip a bit longer, one washer glued down, brass rivet instead of screw, centres the washer. Maybe I’ll try making the handle more rounded too?
