I made those wall hang bottle openers from various scraps of oak,beech and mahogany. Main board, I made from some old spalted oak board I found on junk yard. Finish wood oil. I used also, scrap of LEXAN.
I choose ’’glass with beer foam on top’’ and ’’beer bottle’’ shapes for my version of that project.
Dimensions 30×13 cm, 12mm thick board. Letters – pyrography.
Behind iron opener is the thru hole, so you remove opener, screw it to a wall, than screw iron opener back. This way it is sturdy and hidden.

Nice Openers Ivan. this is one of those projects that’s on my list, but always seems to get pushed off until further notice. I love the lettering, as well.
