They are the CEO of openers!

Made from my pattern and unknown rescued pallet wood. The strings are rawhide for effect and also hanging.
One of them was tested the rest are waiting for final testing. R & D gets expensive!

A big “Thank You” to everyone for the kind words.

Start with a shark outline and a little scissors or ?? modifications will work. Exact measurements are not needed. The thickness of the wood being used can vary also—hard woods can be thinner and work well. I have even made pine openers out of 3/4 inch scraps that work; just will have a shorter life.

This is a very easy project with a scrollsaw; could also be done on a bandsaw and then stack cut, I think. The mouth works best from about 5/16th opening to 3/8 or so. the length of the mouth between bottom jaw front and top jaw should extend out about 1/2 inch for the best leverage. The bottom jaw cut should be at about a 75 degree angle, higher is to hard to make fit the bottle and lower weakens the jaw too much. These are approximate figures from my development.

I will enjoy seeing your versions of the sharks!
