All of the standard places (Rockler, Woodcraft, Penn State, etc.) seem to have bottle openers that screw into a threaded hole. They should all be good quality, but run about $6-8 each. I usually grind away small amounts of wood until it tightens up in the right orientation. I suppose you could use epoxy and get it set on the first try.

Last summer, we were travelling through Europe and many placed had trinket shops with bottle openers. Every single shop seemed to have the same bottle opener hardware made from thin stamped sheet metal. They looked like they would bend or break on the first pull. I doubt that they sold very many because the quality was so low. It seemed to me that they would sell a lot more if they switched to the better quality components, even if they raised the price another $5.
