Bottle Opener and Catcher

This is a red oak bottle opener and catcher with a slide on the bottom to let the caps out.
It has hidden mounting screw- one behind the opener and one behind the slide on the bottom.
I was waiting for an opener from the customer and she cannot find one – I hope she likes the Coke one I found!

It is finished with satin spray lacquer.

Nice job. You raised the bar with this design: hidden mounting screws and a cool slide open bottom.

Great idea, I just recieved a Coke bottle opener as a gift and was simply going to mount it to the wall. This is a much better idea. Thx for sharing!!!!

Nice work Jim, and yes, the Coke logo makes it even better. You are a very productive guy with all the projects and blogs you post. It is making me feel awfully lazy!

Thank you all for the nice comments. I love making things and sharing them here because someone might get an idea on how to make something for them selves. I use ideas from here all the time. I like my catcher much better with the Crown Lager opener, but I’d have to go to Australia to get another!!

Cheers, Jim
