I just watched a video on Youtube on making this style of opener and now these show up here! I think that means that I should make some. Great project and thanks for sharing.

If you check my other posts you’ll see that I’m not generally inclined to make a comment like this….

These openers look great. EXCEPT the ladies may snicker when they see the middle one. It’s very, uh, uh….. phallic. You may want to get someone else’s opinion.

Phew, I’m glad it wasn’t just me. I was hesitant to say it, but then again, you may get asked to make many more just like it!

I agree about the middle one – looks like twig and berries… My sweetheart got a good chuckle. Nice work though! Good use of an now retired coin!
