How to Make a Rustic Bottle Opener

March 4, 2014


This week I used the last of my scrap maple to make a rustic bottle opener. I saw this originally on Pinterest and thought it would be a fairly simple project. This was a really quick build, but I think it has a nice look. I started by sketching the handle on a small piece of 3/4″ maple. From here I went to the scroll saw and cut out the handle. After that, I used sandpaper to help shape the handle for a more comfortable grip. Once that was done, I drilled a hole in the top for the nail to go. I added some epoxy and hammer the nail in. I then went over to my vise and bent the nail to the correct shape.
