Been working on a number of bottle openers and decided to try a lacquer finish on them as it should hold up a bit better. Problem was how to apply the finish on a round thing. Here is the simple solution I came up with.

Basic piece of scrap wood (actually game that did not work out) 3/8” bolts and nuts. It worked worked well. I have 5 new bottle openers already dried with lacquer and the epoxy is now curing on them.

Looking forward to delivering these to the gift shop this coming week along with an order of Bloomin’ Pens.

Maybe with these pens Bloomin’ it will encourage some other things in the garden to bloom.

Have a good day all and hope you get some shop time.

The rack looks easy enough to make. But unless you plant those pens in the garden, I think Spring will take its sweet time to get here.
