Being a contender for Tightwad of the year; I had to make a different type of beer opener.

Made from an old washer, a junk drawer screw and a chunk of firewood!

I left the bark on part, used the belt sander to make finger groves, etc. Then it was spary polyuretened.

The bottle top slot was made more usable with a small round hand file. I only have tp 1” fosterner bits so; had to improvise slightly.

It was not really on fire and then rescused! That is for the story of it! I actually used the propane torch on it.

No Pattern; did HAVE to give it a trail run though—complete success! The Brrr was good to.

-- Wood rescue is good for the environment and me! just rjR

Cool, funny I have been making openers this week too. I’ll post them later, if LJ’s works.

That is, without a doubt, the ugliest bottle opener I’ve ever seen. I love it! Instant character. ;)
