Just a simple wall mount opener made from a natural edge slab of red elm. There’s always a good wavy grain on the side edge of the crotch.
The mounting screw is hidden behind the opener and I placed 3 earth magnets through the back.

Very nice looking bottle opener—I like that live-edge elm!

Are the magnets for mounting the opener, or for catching the caps?

Very selective piece of elm Tim. Nice job.
I lost an elm tree a couple weeks ago from a lightning strike. Was hoping for some good lumber only it was all rotted and ant infested.
