I made this fun little ergonomic bottle opener for my girlfriend- who enjoys quality beer as much as I do! This was part of her Valentine’s Day present, along with some local beer, of course. She’s a keeper!

I did not have a specific shape in mind, so I cut it freehand on my bandsaw, then sanded the edges. I ran short of time, so I had to use screws instead of something more fitting.. They are held in place with a couple drops of CA as well. It’s finished with a few coats of gloss polyurethane.

My favorite part about it is the thumb “rest” and the contrasting colors in the grain.. Time to make more!
