A few basic bottle openers I made. Each one has a small magnet recessed in the backside that you can use to keep it on the refrigerator. Great item to take tailgaiting at a game.

The bolt isn’t the most attractive method to attach the items together but it worked. I wanted to find some hardware used for knife making and that would’ve given a much cleaner better appearance. That’s in the next revision.

These are really cool. You just don’t see them around. Good work. Hey, how about using epoxy to apply the wood?

They do look very nice. I always lose the one I keep in the shop to open my beer, er,I mean paint cans. It would be convenient to have a magnet on mine to keep on my shop equipment, and close at hand
Where did you get a supply of the ole Church Keys? They seem to be scarce these days. lol

I picked up a handful of these at a local liquor store. They were in a bin at the checkout for about $.99 each. I did notice many of this style are nothing more than a soft metal covered in chrome and not durable by any means.

The “old church keys” I picked up at a local liquor store. They were in a grab bucket at the check out register for a dollar a piece. At that price I couldn’t pass them up.

Have your say...
