This is a prototype bottle opener made of what I believe to be soft maple or poplar. Going to make some walnut bottle openers much the same way, but I’ll curve the bottom in the walnut openers to make it more authentic. Pretty easy to do: I first marked and drilled the holes on the drill press then I free handed a curve to cut out on the band saw, the rest was turned. No finish as this is just a prototype. A few things to note: the thickness of bottle caps (I got real lucky and nailed it, perfect fit) and the width of the screw’s heads. I suppose one could use nails, provided they’re glued in the pre-drilled holes. I’ll be posting the finished walnut openers by this weekend.
